Dear Parents, families, and students,
Wow! We have reached the final week of school! Where has the time gone? I have been blessed being able to work with your fabulous children for the past 180 days. I cherish each one of them and will miss them next year!. Hopefully they have a wonderful summer filled with great memories. Please enjoy the poem below. It is my take on the year.
At the beginning of the year, earlier than September,
They came into my class, how well I remember.
Some of them were smiling and giggling a lot,
Some were very quiet and a few tears I could spot.
They came here to learn, to be taught how to enrich their reading,
They were then very much like a tiny new seedling.
They were all in my garden just waiting to grow,
So this gardener got busy with her rake and her hoe.
I fed them the water and let in the sun,
They took in the soil, but we had only begun.
Each day as I worked in this garden of mine,
I saw them all growing so strong and so fine.
Then finally one day I took a good look,
And saw each of my flowers engrossed in a book.
It was obvious then that they had worked too,
Soaking up all the food I had given to them.
But although they have blossomed, they still need to grow,
So I'll pass them on now to another gardener I know.
She too has a rake and hoe she can use,
And plenty of food from which they can choose.
I hope they will keep their roots open wide,
Take in all her food and keep it inside.
Yes, a gardener can work all night and all day,
But the flower must be willing to take in reach ray.
So they will work very hard in their new garden next year,
Doing the best they can so they'll have nothing to fear.
I wish they grow strong and tall, reaching up for the sun,
Staying as nice as they are and having lots of fun!
Thank you for an awesome year!!
