A Note from Mrs. Anderson
I just wanted to write a quick note letting you know how much I have appreciated spending this year with your kiddos! This has been my favorite year by far and I am so sad to not be continuing on with them to 7th grade. I wanted to let you all know that my family will be re-locating to Tulsa so your kids will have a new counselor next year. I am so thankful for the time I have had with this awesome group of kids, and I can't wait to hear what they accomplish over their next two years at Central. I'm so thankful that you have entrusted this sweet group of students to me! I will miss you all so much! Let me know if your ever in Tulsa :)
