Principal’s Message

Hello Blossom Gulch Families,

As we close the 2014-15 school year, I wish to reflect on the school year. It was suggested by a number of parents that if there were adults moving up and down the sidewalk and opening car doors they would be willing to let their children out of their cars … and this might help move traffic along. I think it’s worked pretty well. I have truly enjoyed being part of the Blossom Gulch Valet Service and would like to share some of the things I’ve learned opening car doors:

There’s no better way to start the day than saying “Good Morning” and “Have a great day” to students and families. We saw so many wonderful smiles every single day! It provided us with a positive way to start each and every day.

Car exhaust stinks! There’s no other way to put it. On those foggy, cold winter mornings I sometimes wondered what I was doing out here smelling all those fumes. But the smiles were still there and it really didn’t seem all that bad.

There are so many different door handles. Most of them are just regular, ordinary door handles that have been around for a long time. But then some car manufacturers decided to put them at an angle and some even blend into the car so well that initially they are difficult to see.

As a driver I like my dark, tinted windows. However, that’s not true when I’m trying to decide which car door to open. With time this got easier as I became familiar with everyone’s vehicle.

There is such a tremendous bond between parents and children. What better way to start your day than hearing everyone say “I Love You”. These 3 words set the tone for the day – and everyone needs to know they are loved.

Mrs. Saveland is wonderful! She has so much enthusiasm and it was so much fun working with her every day. Can I say that again … Mrs. Saveland is wonderful!

We have a huge responsibility each day as parents relinquish their children to us. We take our job very seriously. Children are your most precious gifts – and it is our job to keep them safe, teach them lots of really cool and important things, and have fun.

I LOVE my job! There’s no better way to start the day than getting a smile from a child, saying good morning and have a great day to students and families. It’s been a great opportunity for me to get to know so many wonderful people.

Thank you to everyone for making this year very special!

Best wishes for a wonderful summer – and we’ll see you again in September.
