Warm Wishes

To My Students With Love
Each one of you is a super star  In your own special way  ‎We love you for who you are  ‎As you make our day!
Scholar, artist, singer,designer, We Know you will create a world of your own And spread love and goodness around With the pure thoughts that your teachers have sown.
Remember, the more you give,the more you get Amidst the humdrums of life Never let your mind forget.
May you all reach the pinnacle of success And create a world like never before Where stories of  honesty and truth, empathy and care Row the boat of life as the oars.
