Thank You!

I am amazed at what a fantastic group of parents you all are. I need to thank each and every one of you for stepping up and jumping in and volunteering to do so many thankless tasks this year. I have been so lucky this year to have all of your support and help that was given so cheerfully. It has made a huge impact on me and on our whole crew of students. The following list is far from complete but shows you just how much you have all done for our crew this year.
Thank you for:
  • Chaperoning Voyages – which includes so many things from being responsible for kids, carrying gear, being role models, helping kids with gear, helping with meals, giving up some sleep to tend to sick kids and/or homesick kids, bonding with the kids and providing emotional support to kids, teachers and other chaperones
  • Helping with the gear check at home
  • Helping load and unload gear
  • Chaperoning other field work experiences
  • Running classroom parties
  • Sending in supplies to help make the parties a success
  • Doing clerical work for me
  • Coming in to help with students in class during Exploration Stations and Math
  • Being an audience for students during Writer’s Workshop and Reader's Workshop
  • Belaying for the climbing wall
  • Attending all of the various trainings and meetings
  • Keeping up with all of the many communications sent home (This is no small task when you are in my crew!)  :)
  • Organizing and planning school-wide activities like Life is Art, Teacher Appreciation Day, Boot Camp and more
  • Reading with your child and sending them to school each day well prepared and ready to learn
I am sure that this list is not complete but I do want you to know that I am aware of how hard you all work and how much time you put in to make our crew and our school a better place. It has such a positive impact on all of the students and all of us as a crew. Thank you.
