Well, our prayers have been answered and Amy was returned to us this week. Year 1 welcomed Amy back to class for a few sessions this week and we couldn’t be happier. Amy brought her beautiful smile back into our classroom and into our hearts. It was a joy to have her back in class and I was so proud of all of the children for how careful, sensitive and thoughtful they were.

All of the children have worked very hard this week, but these are the children we are celebrating….
