I gave you a warm and welcoming smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You've been with them for five years now
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave them at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I'll love each and everyone one of them
And help them learn and grow.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love them and take them in
When you leave them at my door.
I am looking forward to a great year with you!
Love, Mrs. Hasebe
