Our Lely Elementary Reading Coach, Karen Pelletier, came up with a way for us to communicate our love for our kids directly to them. She wrote a poem, had each teacher take a picture with one word from the poem, and she put all of the photos together to give a strong message to our kids. They loved it! This is one of the many ways we are showing our kids how much we love and miss them.
We miss our Lely Lions,
that we used to see each day.
So we thought we'd get together,
so you could see us say:
We still love you and we miss you,
and together we'll get through.
But we have to say
school's not the same
without our Lely crew.
We remember all the kindness,
that you showed in many ways.
The smiles and love you gave us,
still warm our hearts each day.
Even though we're in different places,
and each inside our home,
we'll get through this together,
you will never be alone.
Your Lely family
