Saying Good-by

Today is the last day of the 2008-2009 school year. Today we watch our little TDRs leave our classroom for the summer, to return in the fall as taller, wiser second graders. We could not be prouder of any group of children. We have had some wonderful times together and feel each child is well prepared for the journey ahead. We have so loved your children and we have also loved getting to know each family. You have been so incredibly supportive this year. We have a special thank you to our room moms, Gina Allmond and Donna Powell. We couldn't have asked for more help and support. We just don't have enough superlatives for all they have done for us and for your children. What a blessing! We are thrilled that Gina will joining our Chets Creek family next year as a paraprofessional!

We can't thank you enough for your thoughtful gift certificates yesterday! Look for us at the malls because we will each be shopping in the week to come! We also the love the other gifts and the picture to put on our desks to remind us of this year traveling around the world in 180 days! However, there is no gift that could ever compare to the gift you have given us by trusting us to care for your most precious child this year. We are not sure who has learned the most - the children or the teachers! When we get back to school in August, each of us will be going in a different direction. Mrs. Timmons and Mrs. Ruark will each be going up to their own second grade classroom to teach Reading and Writing. Mrs. Daniels will be in first grade again and Mrs. T will go down to Kindergarten. We hope that you and your children will stop by often and let us know how things are going. We will be looking for your smiling faces because we expect to hear the greatest things! We hope you have a wonderful summer break. We love you dearly!
Go TDRs!
