Please RSVP.

Not to any specific event or anything, but just in general, please RSVP. When your child gets invited to an event or activity or a party with a friend, please RSVP. And then, if you do RSVP that your child is coming, please make sure they show up. I know that for us adults it might not seem like that big of a deal, and we might just think it has to do with how many cups or paper plates someone needs to buy, but for our students, particularly the younger ones, it is of colossal importance.
