When I was a child the summers seemed so long and leisurely. Because both my parents were public school teachers in Manatee County, we all enjoyed long days of slow-paced island living. My childhood friends and I had lots of fun playing at the beach, riding our bicycles, and playing kick the can in the streets. We were unfettered as we whiled away the summer days in our carefree ways. My first awareness of the closing of summer came annually on August 11, my cousin’s birthday. It was my harbinger marking summer’s end and warning of the upcoming school year. How I hated her birthday! Summers belong to childhood, and I hope your child had a great summer, the kind that adult longings perpetuate.
On behalf of the entire Center staff, I would like to welcome you to the new school year. Education is not only our vocation, it is our passion. We are excited to have the opportunity of sharing this part of your child’s lifetime. We are committed to doing our best at enticing your child to reach for the stars and place them in his or her educational crown. We will need your help, confidence, and support along the way. Please join hands with us as we work together to make a difference in your child’s life.
