With Gratitude!

Dear Parents,

I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all of the donations that you have been sending in over the last few weeks. Whether it was flashlights for our science lab, cleaning supplies and Kleenex to replenish our supplies, or food and milk for our cereal party for Mrs. Barrow, you have been generous times ten.

I’ve mentioned to a few of you individually that having to ask for donations is one of the single most embarrassing things that I do as a teacher. I wish that we had everything that we needed here at school, but we just don’t. That stinks — and having to rely on all y’all stinks too.

But I’m grateful that you are willing to help because it makes my job easier and our classrooms more engaging and positive places to be.

With regards,
Bill Ferriter
