A Special Thanks to Lakeview Teachers from a Parent Volunteer

“A special note from one of November’s Volunteer of the Month (volunteer to be announced December 15th)! PTA is actually in charge of this but the note was too sweet not to share!

To: The Teachers and Faculty of Lakeview Elementary,

Wow! This is a surprise! Thank you very much! This is so nice, and I am honored that you all would think of me for Volunteer of the Month. I will absolutely accept!

Honestly, I just love helping you all at the school, because everyone there works so hard to make Lakeview a great place for our children to come and learn, make lasting friendships, and have fun!

I know your job as educators is not an easy one. I will speak for myself, as well as all of the other volunteers and parents of Lakeview, and say that we are so grateful, and feel so very blessed to have you be such an intricate part of our kid’s lives. I, along with many others, whole heartedly know that our children are well taken care of and loved when they are in your presence.

So, from the bottom of my heart, in the center, and all around, THANK YOU for all that you do each and every day.”

We were talking about our 5 senses for the writing framework. I asked what are things that we touch in December. The student answered “We touch ourselves.”
