Dear GBE Parents and Families,

Thank you for this school year! We have grown and learned many new things. The students are full of new experiences and are ready to spend some time taking a brain break, but gearing up for Summer School or next Fall. We have been excited to have many new faces join us this year and will look forward to many more as we enter the next school year. Your child and their time with us is precious and we value each moment that we have to helping them achieve their goals. They are full of possibilities!!

With that thought in mind as we wind down the school year I would like to leave you with one of my favorite poems by Shel Silverstein--

Always remember what wonderful things have been created from the imagination of a child.
