Sterling Education - Learning to Learn

I would like to thank all of the students for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special. I received many handwritten messages from the students. I will treasure these notes. Thank you for the lovely plant and the homemade chicken pot pie. I love Gerbera Daisies. I was able to get it planted this past weekend. Mrs. Bowyer, thank you for helping the Student Leadership Team organize this surprise for the teachers and for making the wonderful homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream. It was delicious!
