Thank You for an Amazing Year

"How did it get so late so soon? 
Its night before its afternoon. 
December is here before its June. 
My goodness how the time has flewn. 
How did it get so late so soon?" 
- Dr. Seuss
--------------------------------------

Thank you for all the support you give your children, and approaching school as a partnership.  I truly appreciate all the time and energy you have invested.  The sense of community at Breck is one of the key characteristics that make it an honor to work here. 

I always find the end of the year hard. The reality is, that even though some of these same children will be together as they go through Breck, all of us will never be together again. It’s a time for celebrating, and even feeling a little sad. The community that these fine sixteen individuals fostered will cease to exist in its current form, but they are all set for their next grand learning experience.  I have learned as much from them as they have from me. Your children have been such a wonderful group.  Their energy, intelligence, talent, humor, sense of adventure, and perseverance has made being their teacher an honor. I am excited to see where each of their paths lead. They have truly made me smile every single day. Your children are a true blessing.

This has been a wonderful class. Each individual has grown and contributed to creating an active, thinking, creating, kind, scholarly community. I have enjoyed their wonderful sense of humor, their curiosity for the world around them, their joy for stories, their hard work, and their dear sweet hearts. I feel lucky and blessed for having had the opportunity to work with you and your children this year. Breck families truly make teaching a joyful and magical experience. 

I hope you and your family are able to share many new adventures this summer. I would encourage you to learn from the wisdom of your children. Let's learn to take each day as a new start, find magic in something we see every day, and accept that we can always find a way to make things work. Our preschool community may have been created by a group of 16 young children, but they are a talented group. Their ability to skip through life with a giggle and a smile is something we adults should learn to emulate. I honestly believe that much of our life would be improved if adults would turn to children as examples in humanity.   

Have an incredible summer. 

Concert

We had our first rehearsal for Closing Exercises today.



The preschoolers will be in the middle of the risers. You will notice that our class is standing on the left side.  This provides many great seating opportunities for your family to see your preschooler. The main areas to avoid sitting tomorrow are the extreme sides of the chapel. Most other areas will work well.

Photo Link

Tonight and tomorrow I will be sending each family a Google Drive link. This will allow you to access a folder of photos of your child that have been taken throughout the year. I will keep them on my Google Drive until the beginning of the school year. Feel free to browse at your photos, download them, and print them off. I tried to select photos that are either a good shot of of your child or show an activity that your child was deeply involved with at the time. Please let me know if you should you have any difficulty accessing the files from the link you are sent.

Happy Birthday, Sam

Yesterday we were able to celebrate Sam's birthday.
