Poem dedicated to all staff

By Ms. Smith, Teacher Assistant at AVANCE-Hardy

We appreciate you

You come to work early every day.
You greet us at the door in a special way
You copy create and plan
You make sure your students understand
We thank you for all you do, that’s why we want
To say ”we appreciate you”

You set appointments and answer the phone
As our director you set the tone.
You cook our meals fresh each and everyday
You clean our building in a special way.
We thank you for all you do, that’s why we
Want to say we appreciate you.

You are a grandma to our kids who need one.
You make sure our medical records are done.
You assist our families and register them too.
You are Mr. Henry’s thing one and thing two.
We thank you for all you do that’s why we
Want to say we appreciate you.

All of you are reliable
All of you are dependable
It takes the whole staff to make it through a School year.

And guess what the end is near
The staff is great at Hardy
So celebrate and have a party
Because it takes a special person to do what you do
So that’s why we want to say
We appreciate you.
