Thank you for a fabulous year!

Good-byes are always tough. To all my kinders and their families,

This has been a wonderful kindergarten year and it was truly a pleasure to work with your child, to watch them grow and learn all year, build beautiful friendships and to establish their love and foundations for learning. This is the beginning of many milestones to conquer and achieve. I am proud to have been able to be part of their growth. Good-luck in first grade and have a great summer. You could always visit! I will miss you my darlings!
