I always like to give credit where credit is due, and for the month of May, that credit goes directly to the heart and soul of our school: the teachers! I’m so proud of all of the work that our teachers put in to provide your children with fulfilling and memorable early childhood experiences. Many of our teachers put in time and effort well beyond the school day with no extra compensation other than the smiles given to them by your children each morning. While they often tell me that those smiles are more than enough, I’m sure we can all agree that they certainly deserve so much more. I hope you will join me in honoring them this month during Teacher Appreciation Week!
