End of Year Message for Parents

Dear Parents,

I wanted to take a moment as we close out this school year to tell you what a joy it has been to teach your students.  Far too soon, I will give you back your students, the same students you confidently entrusted to my care last July. I give them back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than they were back then, although they would have attained this growth in spite of me. It has been my happy privilege to watch their personalities unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development. I have thrilled at each new achievement, each new success, every achievement of self. It has been a joy and a delight to see students’ eyes fill with wonder as they make connections between curriculum and our shrinking global community.

I give these students back to you with a degree of sadness, for having spent these many months together, we have grown and laughed and learned, and enriched each others’ lives together.  Reluctantly, I must now entrust these marvelous students to the 8th grade teachers to further their life-long journey of fostering the love of learning.

Remember that I will always be interested in your children and their destinies, wherever they go, do, or become. The joys and sorrows I’ll be happy to share. Please call me if there is ever anything further I can do. 

Sincerely,
Barbara Rothschild
