As I have written a few letters over the last 9 weeks, I am going to keep this pretty short.  I am so remarkably proud of these students, our staff, and our teachers!!  FANTASTIC WORK!

We spent the last couple of days saying goodbye to our kids—and for some kids it was for the summer and for some it was for forever.  We drove around to the houses and it truly was a special time for us to see the smiles on the faces of our students and just to see each of them in human form one more time.  Those who are leaving us for good—YOU WILL BE MISSED!! A piece of my heart will always be with you.

SENIORS—This will probably be the worst experience of my career.  I have always enjoyed the last weeks with my Senior Classes—trying to fit in the last memories, giving the last bit of advice, laughing from the pranks that tend to happen.  This was all taken away from us but I want you to know how PROUD I am of each of you.  Go out and conquer the world—but don’t forget about us.  Please come and visit!

Today we planted the school garden without the kids.  It was a great time to work together as a staff one last time.  This also led to a small farewell luncheon to honor the staff that is leaving us.   It is always hard for us to say goodbye to people who have truly given themselves to the field of education, who have touched the hearts of our students, and who we have worked alongside as colleagues for-- more times than not— more hours in a day than we spend with our families.  So, I SALUTE YOU EACH:

Mrs. Katie Henry—one of the foundational bricks in our system.  YOU WILL BE MISSED MORE THAN YOU KNOW!  I wish you happiness and success as you move on to a new career.

Mrs. Sharon Blekestad—RETIREMENT—EASY STREET—it’s all yours and it is waiting for you.  Thank you for all your years of dedication—multiple times for the Edmore Public School over the years and wearing a multitude of hats.  Rumor has it we often need subs in the building so don’t change your phone number.

Mr. Connor Weber—Thank you for the different roles you filled at the Edmore Public School—each year was different and you were resilient and took on each new challenge.  Who’s going to do my data for me now??!  Enjoy the “big city” life—and when you finally decide to get hitched—let us know!

Ms. Abbie Bertsch—Our 1st year teacher who left a VERY LARGE FOOTPRINT on all of our hearts—students and staff.  You made a difference in the lives of many children.  We are so sad to see you go….who are we going to blame everything on now?!

In closing, each year is always different.  I learn and grow right along with the students.  I make mistakes and I try to improve from them, just like the students.  But there is one thing that is for certain—I wouldn’t choose any other kids I would rather be around.

Yours in Education,

Mrs. Martinson, Principal
