In the blink of an eye this challenging, as well as rewarding, school year has come to a close. As we watch each child leave our classroom for the summer Mrs. Sharlene and I can’t help but remember their first days with us. It is always humbling to be a witness of the children’s growth and development throughout the school year.
While many of our children and families are returning, some will be moving on. To everyone, we wish you the best of summer and the best in the years ahead. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your help and cooperation throughout this journey of a school year that has been unlike any other. We are so thankful to have gotten to spend this time with your children and know they will always have a special place in our hearts. I will leave you with a poem that sums up our feelings at the end of the school year:
I have worked with your flower, and helped it to grow.
I’m returning it now, but I want you to know
This flower is precious, as dear as can be.
Take care of it, and you will see
A bright new bloom, with every day.
It grew and blossomed, in such a wonderful way.
In August, just a bud, then January, a bloom, now a lovely blossom
I’m returning to you.
Remember, this flower,
As dear as can be.
Though rightfully yours,
Part will always be with me!
Wishing you a peaceful, restful summer full of unforgettable memories!
Amanda and Sharlene
