Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to your children during these unprecedented times. It is definitely difficult to teach and work from home but your children are growing and learning each day and the time spent with you is something memorable they will forever cherish.
Don’t forget to enjoy the moment and reflect on the positives of this situation. Ms. Vanessa misses the students very much and I cannot wait to go back to school, hear their silly stories and most importantly hear their laughter in the playground as they enjoy the time with their friends and teachers!
