End of the Year Party!

Well, the school year is almost complete. Holden's last day is Thursday. However, we had the official End of the Year party today. The kids enjoyed painting rocks, dancing, eating lunch, and presenting Mrs. Jan with a keepsake album with letters and pictures of her students from the past 20 years.
Mrs. Jan is a remarkable individual. She cares very dearly for our kids, and her passion for teaching is demonstrated by all the meaningful things she does for them. She plans field trips on days we are not in school, she makes each child their very own special t-shirt for their birthday and presents them with a gift and a bible. The list could go on and on.

We have been blessed to have such a wonderful teacher and even better person. She truly is a blessing from God. After 20 years of teaching at Mount Pisgah, she has decided that this year will be her final one. In January she became a grandmother for the first time. As you might imagine, she does not want to miss a single moment. She will be missed but always remembered!

Here are some pictures from the party:
