That's a Wrap!

Another school year is coming to a close, and third grade is done and dusted. We teachers work an extra week after the kids go, but that still means vacation for Sojo. And, as she is getting more and more independent, that means she can stay home by herself instead of coming to work with us as she normally does.



It was the best year ever for her, and she has a renewed spark for learning. Her teacher was so good at celebrating everyone and making them feel wonderful and capable. Sojo, not often a gushy kid, wrote her teacher a letter that said: "Thanks for accepting me for who I am." Truly, at the end of the day (and at the start of the day as well), that is what matters most and what helps kids succeed.

One more week before we are off to Port Townsend for some hopefully cooler temps and loads of family time.

So glad last year was such a pivotal point for her in school. Such an important year for learning and a springboard for the next year. Love to see her shine.
