Thank you to all the wonderful teachers, staff and volunteers at Quadra Elementary School.
The Grade 5 graduation this evening was very touching. What wonderful young people we have among us- thoughtful, kind and inspiring each and everyone.
I found a quote today that expresses well my own feelings in particular about Deb Hawkins and Mr. K, my son Mandela's primary teachers, who will always hold a place in our hearts,
"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
Thanks for a great year and have a wonderful summer.
