Dear Park teachers and staff,
In a year when things got so overwhelmingly confusing, you calmly led our children by their hands and hearts and showed them that everything was going to be all right. It takes a certain kind of grace and strength to be able to do the work quietly and purposefully, even when you were constantly challenged.
You brought ONLY your light and love whenever you taught - cutting through the barriers of computer screens, masks and physical distance, and somehow always managed to connect with each of your students.
They will remember this year, not for the unique difficulties it posed, but for all the daily examples of warmth, kindness, resilience and joy you showed them. This week and always, we honor and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
