We do not always get a chance to tell the people in our lives how thankful we are for them, so I wanted to take a moment to say how thankful I am for my class this year. This group of kids are amazing! They are such a kind, respectful, and considerate group. I am also thankful to for the families in my class and the support that you all give to our preserve and our school.  Each one of you truly helps to make our class unique and special.  I am hoping that you all have a wonderful, relaxing, well-deserved week off spending time with family and friends! Happy Thanksgiving!
