Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you!!!
Through the children and your efforts, we are only missing five children’s baby photos for the promotion slideshow! I can’t begin to thank you enough for the extra effort everyone put into getting the pictures. If you still would like to include baby photos, you can send them until Friday the 11th.
If you have other photos that you would like to have included, you can send them to me at my email address. If you need them to be scanned, I can do that for you as well. I will be asking/taking any additional photos through May 25th. It’s so hard to believe that the end of the school year is upon us.
Photos of particular interest are the following:
- Field trips
- Pictures from the scavenger hunt – could be on your kid’s phone.
- Pictures from years past
- Photos with friends
- Pictures with Teachers
- Pictures of Teachers
- Anything else you would be willing to share
Thanks to your contributions, I have some really nice photos, however; chances are high that you are holding that rare gem. I will include any photos received and not used in the slideshow in the disk at the end of the year.
On a different subject, I would like to do something that hasn’t been done in the past. Since this is a promotion and not a graduation, I would like to include the parents in the slideshow.
What I would like to have are any words of encouragement you would like to share with your promoted student. This takes many forms, it can be in the way or wishes, compliments, acknowledgements, favorite sayings, use of inspirational sayings, etc.
What I would like to stay away from are actual congratulations. You might be wondering “Why not?” Well, for the majority of kids – their educational journey is really just half beginning (high school and college or trade school) and I don’t want to use felicitations in this setting.
Since this is the first time this has been attempted in a promotion slideshow, I need to receive at least 75%+ responses from families in order to do this. If I don’t receive 75%+ participation, I don’t feel that it’s appropriate to use the material if the larger majority doesn’t participate. Please send any words of encouragement by May 25th.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Than you again for your participation and the great photos that you have sent (and will keep sending).
