Last BLOG of the year!! I am happy and sad at the same time. By this time of the year, I feel I know the students very well and to know them is to love them. I am sad to send them off to middle school because I will miss them. However, they are all very ready and made huge strides this year. Thank you, parents, for your consistent support of me and your child throughout the year. You are their first teachers!! My last request is to keep them reading over the summer. Give them a few days off if they need it, but don't let it be a summer away from literature. Take care of your beautiful faith-filled families.

Thank you for letting me serve your children this year. I can think of no better way to spend my time and energy!!

Love,

Mrs. Falvey
