Dear Teachers: I would like to thank all of you for another wonderful year. Our perspective of Building Blocks this year has been very different from years past for two reasons.
One being Ella herself. She is a much more outgoing, confident and vocal personality than Matthew is. I have heard more songs, seen more actions and know more about what happens at “little School” than I ever did from Matthew.
Two, to see the effects of Building Blocks in Grade One. Matthew has really impressed us with his accomplishments in grade 1 and I have said time and again that it is all due to the great start he received from all of you.
So with that, we look forward to Ella continuing her learning with you in J.K. and know with certainty that she will impress us with her accomplishments that will be guided and supported by all of your efforts here at “little school”.
As in years past, Ella and I have made gifts for each of you to show our appreciation. I have also left a monetary gift with Mrs. Freer so she may purchase something for the J.K class.
