We can’t believe our final week is here!

Parents,
We give you back your child, the same child that you entrusted in our care last fall. We give you back your child a little bit older, a wee bit taller, and a hole lot smarter! It has been our pleasure and privilege to watch their character, personality, and intellect develop day by day as we learned new things together. This year we have lived, studied, learned, laughed, sang, and grew up together. We have become a close-knit classroom family and we will always be a part of each other. Remember that we will always be interested in your child and their destiny, wherever they go, whatever they do, and whoever they may become. We look forward to the day when we hear that familiar name linked with great accomplishments. Thank you for sharing your child with us.
