We give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to our care last fall. We give them back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser,more responsible, and more mature then they were then. Although they would have attained this growth in spite of us,it has been our pleasure and privilege to watch their personalities unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.
We give them back reluctantly, for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a crowded classroom,we have grown close, have become a part of each other, and we shall always retain a little of each other. Ten years from now if we met on the street, a light will shine in our eyes, a smile to our lips, and we shall feel the bond of understanding once more, this bond we feel today. We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. We wish it could go on indefinitely, but give them back we must. Take care of them, for they are precious.
Remember that we shall always be interested in your child and their destiny, wherever they go, whatever they do, whoever they become. Their joys and sorrows we will be happy to share.
We shall always be their friend. ~Author Unknown~
