Report Cards....

and what not to say on them! The "Pointer Sister", the teacher, has a few "pointers" of her own regarding this subject. These comments were part of an email sent earlier this week, and gives new meaning to being painfully blunt! 
  This email message read....."These are actual comments made on students' report cards by teachers in the New York City public system. All teachers were reprimanded.(but, boy, are these funny!)"
1. Since my last report, your child has reached rock bottom and has started to dig.
2.Your child has delusions of adequacy.
3. Your son sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them.
4.The student has a "full six-pack" but lacks the plastic thing to hold it all together.
5.This child has been working with glue too much.
6.When your daughter's IQ reaches 50, she should sell.
7.The gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming.
8. The wheel is turning but the hamster is definitely dead.

Now, I am going to dig up my old report cards, and make sure that there were not any messages, hidden or otherwise, which might have been like these regarding my academic achievements!


  1. These are priceless! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. "pointer sister" brings me back to grade school days, remembering sr. anastasia (principal) walking the halls with her stick... the report card comments were a great laugh too!

  3. glad to hear they all got a little somethin' somethin' for these horrible comments they made to their students!
