Thank You and Farwell
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for blessing me with the most outstanding group of 32 sixth graders. Each individual child has filled a space in my heart. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of our adventures and learning experiences. As families, you have been instrumental in the success of this year. You encouraged your child when they needed it, you supported my efforts in teaching, and you spent years raising children who look beyond differences and seek to grow and learn from each other.
Throughout the year I have held on to many of the projects the students have worked on. They put together a special keepsake portfolio that displays all of their work. Some students took them home Tuesday, and several others will take them home on the last day. I encourage you to take some time to look through this special box with your child. They have much to be proud of!
Finally, thank you for all of your special help in making our ceremony such a success today. Honestly, it was by far my favorite year yet! (Shh...don't tell the older siblings.) Whether you helped with planning and set-up, sent in treats, or simply took the time to be there to celebrate with your sixth grader, your efforts are appreciated.
I look forward to the future visits from your junior high student, high school student, and beyond. Know that I will be rooting for their success and am always just an email or phone call away.
