Dear First Grade Students and Families,
It is with so much joy and gratitude that I look back on our year together. We accomplished so much in what seems like such little time, shared so many joys, and we overcame so many obstacles together. It has been my pleasure and privilege to watch each student grow and learn throughout our year.
Despite the changes we all endured this spring, I am so thankful to the hard work everyone put forward into being flexible and consistent in order to continue to allow our students to learn and thrive. This time has been difficult for many reasons, but a blessing for many others. I commend everyone for the patience and grace you’ve all shown during such an unusual time.
I am so grateful for the blessings I have been given in these 17 precious children. This class has brought me more joy than I could have ever imagined, and I look forward to continuing to watch them grow as they progress in their years at St. Peter’s. Remember that I will always be interested in these children and their life stories, wherever they go, whatever they do, and whoever they become. My students are in my classroom for one year, but they are in my heart forever.
Thank you all for an incredible year filled with hard work, laughter, support, but most importantly, Christ’s unconditional love. I wish everyone a happy and healthy summer!
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” -John 14:27
