20: "Teaching isn't just about the ABC's, it's about the DEF's as well...... Of course you've taught our kids their Alphabet, but you've given them the Ability to learn too. You teach them to Believe in themselves and to see the things that are Beautiful. How you Cuddle our Children. How you show that you Care teaches them Compassion, You let them Dance. You let them Draw. You open the Doors to their Destiny. They are Excited for each day, looking forward to the Enjoyment, to the making of Friends & learning Forgiveness. You're with them every step of the way. You've watched them Grow, you've heard them Giggle. Filling their Hearts with Happiness, watching their Imaginations grow together with their Intelligence. Their Judgements have improved because of you...and so have their Jokes. To our Kids you've taught Kindness & Kinship, to Love & to Laugh. You've seen them Mature and their Manners improve.
21: You Nurture our children, teach them Niceness and Neatness. You listen to their Opinions, give them Options, help them Play, help them Pretend. You foster their Quirks...even if it means they Quiz you about every little thing. They learn that from Rules come Rewards; that learning to Share makes Sense, even if it takes Tears to learn Togetherness, Understanding & Unity. Together your Vibrancy is unwavering, never tiring of their Voices as they tell you their Wishes and about Worms and their Wonderment at the Words that start with X....not many but there are definitely some. And, although the Year is long & for summer they are Yearning, we all really want to Thank You for helping them with their Zips. Originally presented by the 2007-2008 Senior Class But believed by every GCNS Family through the years
