Welcome Back Students and Parents! I know that many of you know that I went to Haiti this summer and also many of you were very kind and gave me give cards for Macy's and Target and Walmart as an end of year gift. I wanted to make you are aware that your generosity was passed forward! I was able to purchase with my Macy's gift cards new dresses for each of the ladies who work in the house we live in in Haiti. I wish I could tell you how happy they were to receive a new dress. They were beaming from ear to ear. One of them put on the dress immediately to attend the presentation of report cards at the school and another came dancing up to me because she was so proud to have a new dress on. I was able to purchase both food and clothing for many of the children with the walmart and target gift cards. I bought jeans for some of the boys and sports attire also. I was able to pick up cute little girl outfits for some of the 12 and 13 year old girls who sometimes get forgotten. I am ever so grateful to be surrounded by such generous parents. You are teaching your children great lessons! I am so excited to get back to the classroom and share my latest adventures with your children and I can't wait to hear about their summer stories! See you soon.
