"Class Dixon" Says "Thank You!"

I really enjoyed being  a classroom mom this year, especially for the Kindergarteners.  They were always so happy to see me and anxious to see what I had in store. Of course, I could NOT have successfully fulfilled that role without the help of their mommies and daddies.  The parent involvement was superb.  Miss Dixon, soon-to-be Mrs. Lawrence, put together, AGAIN with the help of the Kindergarteners' mommies and daddies, a recipe book for me, as a way to say thank you for all that I had done. It included all of the students favorite recipes, as well as, a hand-drawn photo of what they want to be when they grow up! The recipe book is so precious and is certainly, by far, one of the sweetest gifts I have ever received. I made sure to get a group photo, of me, with all of the children that were at school that day (goofy and serious shots).
I couldn't eliminate showing any of the student's artwork or recipes because each student is special to me, so enjoy seeing every single one, below.  I was in a rush taking pictures of this gift, so please excuse the poor photography.

Miss Dixon, you were a pleasure to do Kindergarten with.  You will make a phenomenal wife and an even better momma one day!  We will miss you greatly, but we know that FLES doesn't have ONE non-amazing teacher.  We cannot wait to see which teachers our 1st and 5th graders receive for the 2015-2016 school year. 

To the kids, this is NOT goodbye.  I am excited that I will watch you grow from teenie weenie kindergarteners to big high schoolers.  The time with come fast, sniff sniff, so I hope to cherish it all as a continue to volunteer at the school and the classrooms.  I have enjoyed getting to know you this year.
