They are slithering away....

Our year has come to an end and our little ones will be "slithering" to Grade 1. Our windup was great fun that started with a family potluck lunch, followed by family games (parents, you were great sports,) and the actual ceremony where each student was presented with a certificate of completion. The kids presented their parents with a scrapbook of their work for the year and the day ended with "Our Year in Pictures" slideshow.
I wish a wonderful summer to each of my little ones and end this year with a little poem...

You're a very special person,
And I want you to know.
How I loved to be your teacher,
How fast the weeks did go!
Please come back to visit me
As through the grades you grow,
Try hard to learn all that you can
There is so much to know!!
The one thing I try to teach you
To last your whole life through,
Is to know that you are special
Just because you are you!!!

Mrs. McMahon

You're a wonderful teacher, our kids were fortunate to have your creativity, energy, wisdom and kindness to come to school to every day!

Oh...and the poem...The boys' playschool teacher in Killam was where I first read it (she gave it to them end of the year as well) it teared me up then, and still tears me up now.

Thank you, for all that you are. You are appreciated.
