This is such an awesome setting." Honestly, this first grader said that. If he had a deeper voice, I'd have thought I was listening to a forty-year-old landscape architect. Stretching an arm out toward the mountains, he continued, "Look at how the lawn is so big and it's right next to the playground so you can see everything.., and the moun- tains.., it's cool!" As I listened I realized he was right; I love this school too. It is a great setting. I love listening to the kids squeal, "I'm flying!" when I push them on the swing. I love working with this staff and with you parents and play- ing with your kids. So thanks for letting me play. As I retire from education to pursue another career, I have a lot to be thankful for. Just don't be too surprised ifI showup on your doorstep some Saturday morning and ask if your kids can come out and play. I'm going to miss them. Have a wonderful summer with your families. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary The school office will be closed from June 21st through Au- gust 13th. School will resume on August 24th. Have a great summer!
