Phone Call from the teacher

Tonight as I was getting my youngest fed and ready for bed the phone rang. I thought it was probably my mom but it turned out to be my oldest son's first grade teacher. I was a little worried about why she would be calling me on a Sunday night but it turned out she was just touching base with me about how my son is doing so far in school. Nothing she had to say was a surprise and none of it was bad, but my first reaction when I saw her name on the caller ID was that my son was in trouble for something. Isn't it terrible that when a teacher calls we expect it to be for bad news? I commend her on calling to keep the lines of communication open. I think this is going to be a really good school year for him!
