A letter from your School Counselor:
My Dearest Sunnyside Superstars,
I miss YOU. Each and every single one of YOU.
Just like your teachers, I am missing you every day. I’ll be honest, I was counting down the weeks until Spring Break, BUT these past two weeks have certainly felt like the longest two weeks EVER, and something we definitely were NOT planning for.
YOU, my students, are my joy, my energy, my exhaustion, and my reassurance – all wrapped into ONE. I miss your smiles, your laughter, high fives, fist pumps, and HUGS! I miss your stories, your questions, and your excitement. I never thought I would see the day I would say this but… I miss hearing “Mrs. Pennington!” and “When are you coming to get me!?”
I look forward to the day we can return to school and put all of this behind us. School is OUR home away from home. Until then, you are just as loved, cherished, and thought about as much as you were on the Friday we left. Your Teachers, Principals, Paraprofessionals, Secretaries, Specialists, Custodians, Cafeteria Workers and I will continue our work, for YOU, every day until we can be together again.
Sending lots of LOVE, air hugs and elbow bumps to EVERYONE in our Sunnyside Family. Stay healthy, practice social distancing, and wash your hands! See you soon!
Feel free to email me! Dina.Pennington@smyrna.k12.de.us
