    First Day of School
     

    The tables are clean, 

    The chairs are too.

    Everything's ready and waiting for you!

    Please don't worry,

    There's nothing to fear,

    When friends all gather from far and near.

    I'll greet you each morning at the door,

    Then you'll find out what is in store.

    Working and growing, some playing too!

    I'll pray for you daily,

    That's certainly true.

    You'll meet new friends and old ones, too!

    There's Piggie, Gerald, and Winnie the Pooh.

    Take a deep breath, relax, and smile.

    School will start soon and we'll be learning in style!

    "I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit."                               

                                                              -John Steinbeck                                              

    "And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."  

                                                                                                                              -Abraham Lincoln      

     

    I am grateful for all our fabulous parents who make a difference in your child's education, our class, and the Hendrick Hudson School District!
