This final week, as we “wrap” up the second quarter and the first semester of school, we are reminded of the “gift” we receive each and every day of teaching your children. They bring “joy” to our hearts, “peace” to our souls, and a “hope” that the “present” can always be made a little “brighter”.
We hope you have a wonderful, safe and peaceful holiday.
