Happy Nurses Day to Mrs. Coulson!!!
Teacher Appreciation Week
Before our swap yesterday, teachers had to write something memorable from their year or something that they would miss about their students. Here are a few examples:
The best part of my job is laughing and learning with my students.
My best day of teaching was when two teachers told me that they felt my students had really improved because of my services.
My best day with my class was when we did the ornament exchange and their comments were so gracious and kind.
The best part of my job is seeing my students transform from preschoolers to engaged learners.
As a staff, we appreciate all of the parent support that we receive. It certainly takes a village to make our school so successful. Thanks for your continued partnership!
