Elementary school principal sends heartwarming letter to parents

Exams are stressful for many students; even elementary students can experience the pressure to do well. Sometimes, parents can be the source -- because they themselves are worried. One principal in a private school in Pakistan recognized this, and sent a letter to ease their worries.

The principal of the Dar-e-Arqam private school sent the letter before the start of their first term exams. It was then shared on Reddit:

This school letter to parents right before the exam is awesome from pics

The letter went on to list why a student cannot be the best in everything. For example, if a child is an artist, they will not be the best in math. If they work in business, they will not be the best in history.
