Thank you

Dear Parents,

The school year has flown by and now our 5th graders are ready to soar in middle school! I want to thank you for sharing your children with me through out the school year. It has been a blessing to have these children as part of my daily life!

Also, thank you so much for the volunteerism and donations for our class this year.  We truly could not have had all the activities or had classroom supplies if we hadn’t had such great support.

Have a safe, healthy, and happy summer!  I will miss you!
