    Dear Mr. Agrall, I want to thank you for being an awesome teacher!! I want to give thanks to you because you kept encouraging me at times I felt like I should give up. If it weren't for you to encourage me, I probably wouldn't have passed 4th grade. ( I said probably). So this is why I thank you! #ThankaTeacherthursday 😊

    Ms. Alexander is the kind of teacher that every parent hopes that their child has. She cares deeply about her students and their success which comes across through all interactions with the student and the teacher. Our son struggled during the beginning of distance learning, trying to get him to be in class and engaged was tough. Ms. Alexander stepped in right away to not only make us aware but also took the time to have a very meaningful conversation with our son. She explained to him kindly, but firmly, the importance of his learning and how he had the opportunity to be a leader. Ms. Alexander's investment in Thomas made him want to get to class and ensure that he was on time and ready. She realized his individual strengths and leveraged those to make him a student who is eager to learn ELA. He proudly tells us how ELA is his favorite subject. When he signs off from ELA he comes bursting into the room to tell me about what he learned and an action that he is going to take. I appreciate that Ms. Alexander helps students understand their role in the world too, how they can help the environment, be better people, and contribute to society. She really is one of those teachers our boys will always remember fondly even as they move up through the grades.

    Our family is thankful for Ms. Allen every single day. I'll always remember on Jack's first day I received a note from Ms. Allen letting me know that Jack was having an amazing time. I can't tell you the amount of relief I felt after reading that message! She is there to welcome him every morning with a smile and a warm greeting and wishes him well every afternoon. Any time I have a question, she is quick to respond on ClassDojo. After an incident on the playground she quickly called to let me know Jack was ok-using her own cell phone to get in touch- when the regular tools weren't working. Jack truly loves going to school everyday and he always says its because of Ms. Allen. The extended day has been wonderful for Jack and our family- as it allows us one extra hour of work time- but I can only imagine the added challenges and exhaustion for teachers.
