Mrs. Tracy Caputo « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar
Dear Parents, families,
I cannot believe that this will be my final message to you all. My how the year has flown by! I would like to thank you for your support throughout the year. It has been so very much appreciated.
Since we will be looking at different forms of poetry this week, I find it only fitting that my last message be in the form of a poem. I hope you enjoy it!
In 2015 at the beginning of August,
Although some didn't want to, they came into my class, it was a must.
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 deepen 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 one of my flowers engrossed in a book.
It was obvious then that they had worked hard,
Soaking up all the food and proving it by their report card.
But although they have blossomed, they still need to grow,
So I'll pass them on to another garderner 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 garderner can work all night and all day,
But the flower must be willing to take in each ray.
So they will work very hard in their garden each year,
Doing the best they can and they'll have nothing to fear.
Grow strong and tall, reach up for the sun,
Staying as nice as they are and having lots of fun!
I wish you all a fabulous summer filled with many treasured memories! Thanks for a wonderful year!!
