Dear Parents,


What a joy and privilege it has been teaching your child this year!  I have enjoyed spending the school year getting to know each and every child!  Each child has special and unique qualities that have meant so much to me and their classmates!  I will miss them along with you!  It is such a blessing to have many parents who are loving, caring, and have a supportive spirit towards their child’s teacher!  Thank you!

Children, we have had an amazing year learning, growing, and having fun!  I will miss you more than words can express!  I pray you will have a fun, enjoyable, and memorable summer with your family and friends!
