Letter to the editor: Teachers thankful for end of year support

On behalf of Mary Hogan’s grade five students and staff, we would like to thank two organizations that helped make our end of the year special — the Town of Middlebury Recreation Department and MESA (Middlebury Elementary School Association). Middlebury’s Rec Department donated an afternoon by the pool, enabling our students to have a fun-filled day of swimming and play with friends. Special thanks to Dustin Hunt, Scott Bourne, and their awesome lifeguards for making this happen.

Our appreciation also goes out to MESA, who generously provided funds for our pool afternoon’s pizza and ice cream. Additionally, MESA allocated grant funding for breakfast foods for our closing day’s breakfast held in honor of our wonderful, rising sixth graders. Again, our sincere appreciation to both of these organizations for all they do on behalf of Middlebury’s young people.
