I would much rather the teacher mail my daughter an handwritten note to our house that what her teacher did this year (and I really like her). She sent a mass email to all the parents for thanking us for the group gift the homeroom parent put together. First off, not everyone in the class contributed, second my 6 yr old DD does not check my emails, and third, she also had given her a small gift she personally picked out. I have 2 kids in the district so I get all manners of mail, from individual teachers and the district and unless someone is in the witness protection program, just throw away the junk and keep what you want. As far as Snowdragon saying "Well she knows mine, but I don't know hers." the school has to by law have an address for your kids. If someone doesn't want the school to know, home school.
