We will end the year with a poem found on Pinterest. Enjoy the summer!

Adieu to You

It's time to say goodbye,

The school year's at an end,

We hope you've had lots of fun,

And count us as a friend.

We've watched you learn and grow,

And change from day to day,

We hope all the things we've done,

Have helped along the way.

It's with happy memories,

We send you out the door,

With blessings for good things,

That next year holds in store.

Have a wonderful and safe summer.
