Finally, the aides and I would like to thank you for entrusting your children with us and for choosing a Catholic School education.  We loved working with the children, watching them grow and be intrigued by the world around them.  We know we laid a strong foundation of learning and faith to follow them in the years to come. 

We hope you and your family have a wonderful summer!

Thank you.
