A note from Cate's para-pro
"Dear Lisa & Rick, Thank you so much for the gift you gave me this year - Cate!! She has touched each and everyone of us in so many ways. I can't imagine not having her in my day. Have a wonderful summer. " Ms. L
|They are both growing up so fast!|
Cate gained more than just reading and math skills this year. She gained confidence and spunk. She isn't the little girl I sent to kindergarten anymore, she is a true "big girl" with her own ideas and attitudes.
Dear Cate and Family,
... I have so enjoyed having Cate this year. She is a special little girl who has brightened so many lives at Hickory Hills. Thanks for all that you have done for me, our class, and Hickory Hills. But mostly, thanks for sharing Cate with me this year. Ms. E
These two notes made every tear and every fear worth it. As much as I want a high school diploma for Cate some day - this is what I really strive for, that Cate affects peoples lives for the better and makes some else sun shine a little brighter.
