I recently suggested writing a letter to your child's teacher as part of his/her end-of-year gift. This morning I sent my daughter off to her very last day of kindergarten, packing a smile, some fresh-cut lilacs, a gift card and a letter for her teacher. I know Ms B will like the LCBO card, but I'm hoping the letter will let her know how much she has truly been appreciated. Good teachers are gold.
Dear Ms B,
Thank you for another wonderful year, and for helping to end M's kindergarten experience with the confidence and enthusiasm she will need as navigates full-time school and grade one. We won't be at [this school] next year, but we have no doubt that as our family embarks on a new adventure, M will relay many stories to her new friends about her first favourite teacher.
We wish you all the best in your new classroom, and hope that you'll find that the unexpected turns in the road often yield the most inspiring views.
Thank you for being a part of our story.
Have a great summer, everyone!
