“Made my morning!”

“Made my morning!” – Says a Counterpane parent.
Today we celebrate Counterpane families. Being a parent is hard; being a parent at Counterpane can sometimes seem impossible. Maintaining a holistic, child-centered, learning environment demands whole family involvement (commitment). We know how much we ask of you and we appreciate your never letting us down.
We see you. We see your hard work. Your dedication to your child and this school is evident in every “covenant hour” and beyond. Donations of your time, talent, treasures, and food J (we cannot forget the food), elevates us from individual classrooms to a community of learners; from a school to a home.
We appreciate YOU.
We thank YOU.
YOU made our morning, too!
