A personal note to all my students:
I am so proud of each and every one of you. Our year was cut short, yet you each persevered and continued to work. This was all something new to all of us!! I miss you all so much, and I regret that we are not in my room taking off the last 5 rings of the chain to count down the days!
Next year is high school, and I know that can be scary...but you all have the strength and ability to have a great future! I wish you all the best next year and for the rest of your lives. Stay focused, be kind, always try to do the right thing, (even though it's not easy!)
Remember that I am always here for you. You can email me at any time, not just now, but throughout your future. All of my students are "my kids," not just during the school year, but for the rest of their lives. I read about a formerr student, or hear about them, and I say, "That's one of my kids!"
Lots of love, luck, success, and good health to all of you!
