A note of thanks

I would like to take the time to thank Dr. Maria Carlton of Ruth Hill School for being so kind and caring to the children and staff members.

It is truly a blessing to have you there daily and we can't imagine the school without you. It's amazing that you know each and every child and personality like you do. That’s one of your best qualities and that can't go unrecognized. I’ve seen you take the time to hug a child and talk to them before starting their daily journey. I’ve seen you take the time to hug them before they board their buses for home. You’re always courteous to staff and the parents and you’re always thinking of others.

Thank you for setting a good tone for the children and staff every day. We hoped you would make principal this past year for all your hard work and dedication, but surely it's just an oversight. You so deserve it. This just a reminder that we thank you for all you do each and everyday.
