Second grade was a big year for you. You learned a lot of things and grew a lot. You learned about people and different backgrounds, and how sometime people don't always treat others with respect. It was really tough at times and you pulled through. Always remember the people who surrounded you and helped you get through. Your teacher, asst teacher, principle, the classmates who stuck up for you, your parents. We want to see you succeed, to become the best person that you can be, so that you can give back what you have learned.
And now, here you go again. 3rd grade. You are going to rock it this year. And if you don't get the Mighty Oak award, don't sweat it, in my mind that award pales compared to what you deserve for being awesome.
As tears mixed with sadness and joy stream down my face I think about the coming school year and look forward to guiding you and helping you grow, letting you make mistakes and being there to help you up, and watching you do it on your own.
