School's (almost) out for summer

My son was asked to write something for his teachers as a parting gift from his second grade class. Here is what he wrote. I am so proud! I may be biased, but I think he's a damn good writer!

What I’ll Miss About Second Grade

I will miss Kabbalat Shabbat in D’s room. I will miss Writer’s Workshop in Mrs. D’s room. I really miss how nice D and Mrs. D and Y and Ms. Y are. Y was really nice to me and the kids. When I’m having trouble with something Y always helps me. Ms. Y helps me a lot with almost everything. I like to talk sports with her. And all the other teachers were nice, too. So I’d like to thank all the teachers for teaching me so many new things.

from, J

FYI: Kabbalat Shabbat is the weekly pre-Sabbath classroom celebration (which includes special snacks as well as prayers); D is his Hebrew teacher and Mrs. D his English subjects teacher, Y and Ms. Y are assistant teachers.
