A Great Thank You!!!

 From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the lovely gift card, scrapbook, and flowers!! I feel so very lucky to have taught my first year at St. Paul School. 

 

I also wanted to thank you for entrusting me with your children. It was a true blessing to have gotten to know them and be a part of their learning journeys. It has also been an honour to watch them grow more in their faith, and responsibility. I wish the students all the best in their upcoming year in Grade Six. 

 

Have a spectacular summer

  • Give a detailed account of what the art depicts. 
  • The person reading your description should be able to imagine the piece as if they were seeing it for themselves.

  • Your description has no spelling and/or grammatical mistakes. 
  • It has obviously been proofread and spellchecked. Sentences are complete and logical. 
  • The description can be typed or hand written using size 14, black, ’Times New Roman’ font. It must be backed with  the backing paper provided.
