When the middle school comes in for recess, the lower grades go out. As I was coming up the stairs to go inside, one of the fifth grade girls handed me a wadded up index card. Here is what she wrote on it:
Oh my goodness! My eyes got watery. It was so sweet! I asked the fifth grade teacher if she had assigned the kids to write notes as part of Thanksgiving or something. She said that girl is just nice like that.
I wrote her a thank you note and left it on her desk while she was outside. I told her she made my day, and that I was looking forward to having her in class.
