Dear Families,

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you all for your generous donations and wonderful support this year. Our classroom is a joy and I love my time with your children so much! I am so grateful and thankful for all the beautiful cards and gifts I received from your children. I feel so spoiled and thank you for thinking of me. I am one lucky lady to teach your child at DuVall. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas if your family is celebrating this holiday and ALL of you a Happy New year! I hope you all have a safe and restful break and I look forward to seeing your darlings in 2020!

With love and Gratitude,

Mrs. Ross
