Graduation

Our Kindergarten Graduation is less than a month away!  I can't believe how fast the year went!  I am looking for a new speech/poem to read at Graduation.  I always like to change it up a little each year :)  This is the letter I read to the parents/families last year.  I found it online last year, author unknown.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Dear Parents,

We give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to our care last fall. We give him back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature then he was then.

Although he would have attained his growth in spite of us, it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch his personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.

I give him back reluctantly, for having spent ten months together in the narrow confines of a crowded classroom, we have grown close, have become a part of each other, and we shall always retain a little of each other.

We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. We wish it could go on indefinitely, but give him back we must. Take care of him, for he is precious.

Remember that we shall always be interested in your child and his destiny, wherever he goes, whatever he does, whoever he becomes. His joys and sorrows we will always be happy to share.  We shall always be his friend.

Love,
Your Kindergarten Teachers

  1. There is a poem called "Unity" that I always read to parents at the beginning of the year, but I think it would also work for graduation. You can probably find it by googling Unity - if not, I will try to get it to you. Camille (tomrsjohnson@gmail.com)
