"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."  ~ Helen Keller

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you SO much for an awesome year. We accomplished so much!  This is our last week of school and I am going to miss all of you. I have enjoyed being your teacher this year.


"I am glad I was your teacher 
I have come to love you so 
I can't believe the end is here 
I hate to see you go! 
Remember all the fun we had
In all the things we did
But most of all remember...
You are a very special kid!"

Have a great summer vacation!  Enjoy your time with families and friends, and be safe.
