February 8th - 12th
YOU ARE THE GREATEST!
I wanted to thank you all for the fun, thoughtfulness, generosity, and organization you put into Catholic Schools Week! None of this would have been possible without you. I know it's quite a lot to keep track of, but we had the best time, saw some of the cutest costumes for Spirit Week, and were able to honor and appreciate all those we love in our school community and families. I felt so special and appreciated on Teacher Appreciation Day - all thanks to YOU! I am the luckiest Kindergarten teacher on the planet. You have the most wonderful, incredible kids, and I love them like I love my own. Thank you so much for all you do!!!!!!
