Thanks to Summerland educators

And so, as we bid farewell to the school system, we want to say thank you.

Dear Editor:

Sixteen years ago we enrolled our oldest daughter in kindergarten at Giant’s Head School and next week our youngest daughter will be graduating from Summerland Secondary School.  And so, as we bid farewell to the school system, we want to say thank you.

During various years, our girls attended public schools, Montessori school and were even a part of the home learners program for one year.

In all of their school experiences we were impressed with the very helpful, kind and quality instruction they received.  They were challenged, encouraged, listened to and cared for.

School staff at all levels made their years memorable and enjoyable.

So thank you to administrators, teachers, educational assistants, coaches, support staff, you all play a vital role to make the school run effectively; to make students feel like they matter, prepare them for a life time of learning and encourage them to be a positive influence in our world.

Thank you so very much.

Bob and Caroline Isaak
