So Happy for You

sohappyforyou

Good morning!  There are big changes happening at my school at the end of this school year.  Our principal is transferring to a new school, our music specialist teacher is following her to the same school and 2 more teachers are retiring.  So I’m slowly making special cards to suit each of their talents and/or personalities.  First up is the card I will give to our music specialist.  She takes my kids for music 3 times a week and works miracles with them.  Whenever they perform for me, I always get tears in my eyes.  She really has a gift for getting them to focus and work hard.  So it was a “must” that this card have some music sheet paper on it.  I’m using this week’s sketch over on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog.  It is their 100th sketch and they’re celebrating with a new blog look, new blinkies, and fabulous new prizes!  Thanks so much for visiting :)  Have a lovely Sunday :)

We are losing both our Grade 7 teachers this year and I'm crushed as I love them both and my son will be in grade 7 next year :( Think there are a few others leaving too.

I'm sure the music teacher will love receiving it and what a joy to hear how she pulls so much out of the kids.
