“When I started in school

This day seemed so far away.

Now is it here, I can’t believe 

That time has passed so quickly… 

But through your courage and guidance,

I feel I am ready for tomorrow’s challenges.

School Resource Officers, Teachers and Staff 

Play such an important part

In shaping and guiding…

Especially ones like you. 

Thank you for caring so much.”
