I'm sure you've heard this one before, but my Grammar school was the best. I was so lucky to get great teachers (my favorite? Mrs. Green, my second grade teacher), a wonderful principal (Mr. Bryant), a very funny and wonderful custodian/bus driver (Mr. Mitchell seemed to do everything including mow the lawns), and a wonderful school secretary (Mrs. Roberts). Funny, you never forget the good things..........

Sorry, we couldn't help it - Nancy Drew mysteries were our favorite books when we were young.
Have a great year!
