Thank you to our wonderful parent volunteers some of whom came out to our Volunteer Appreciation event last week. Our youngest students video taped a performance to say thank you and yummy treats were provided made by our staff and students. A lovely flower gift was given to each volunteer along with a special poem that expresses our sentiments and our belief in the important partnership between home and school.
I dreamt I stood in a studio,
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child’s mind,
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher—the tools she used,
Were books, music, and art.
The other, a parent—working with a guiding hand,
And a gentle loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled
With a touch that was deft and sure.
While the parent labored by her side,
And polished and smoothed it o’er.
And when at last, their task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child,
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed
If each had worked alone,
For behind the teacher stood the school,
And behind the parent, the home.
