This summer we will say good-bye to many of our friends.  Even though we will miss each other, we will always think of the happy times we had together and be thankful, and we will always wish more happy times for each other.

In this song, Teacher Laura tells you what she feels when she thinks of each one in this class.     Here are the words if you want to sing along: 

        A SHINGING STAR     https://vimeo.com/566752337

What a year we’ve had to work and play!

I’ve watched you grow and learn every day.

And now that we’ve come to the end of the year,

There’s something I want to say and I want you to hear.

You are magnificent!      A Shining Star!

 I’m proud of you!         You’ve come so far!

I knew you were special right from the start,

And you’ll always, always, always have a place in my heart.
