A big thank you to the parents of Ridge.
I want to say to the H.S.A. of Ridge elementary a big thank you for the maternity gift. I was touched by the generosity and thoughtfulness. It really is a privilege to work with such supportive and caring families. Ridge is a special place, hence why I was saddened to leave so abruptly and not say any official goodbyes before going on maternity leave. We are now in a very challenging time due to the current health crisis. I want to wish everyone a safe and healthy end of year. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families of Ridge. Again, my sincere thanks, from my family to yours.
