Mrs. May's and Mrs. Ryan's News

It is bittersweet to say, "Goodbye and Good Luck to "our kids". We know they will be in good hands in 4th grade. We are also counting on them to stop and see us once in awhile.

We can't end the year without thanking each and every one of you. We are so unbelievably grateful for the love you gave your kids as well as the support you gave to them as well as to the teachers. We asked a lot of you all year long and you welcomed every request we threw at you. This group of 45 children will hold a special place in our hearts. We learned as much or more from them as they learned from us.

With tight hugs and warm wishes,

Jodi and Heather
