Don’t Forget the Thank You

ThankYou

My children attended Penn State University and both received several scholarships while they were there (yes, I am a very proud mom). I was always impressed about the way the university handled scholarships.  The scholarship money was not released to the student’s financial account until a thank-you note was received by the university to forward to the scholarship donor.  Here was a major university taking the time to teach basic manners.

The holiday season is a great time to teach children about the importance of saying thank you.  Thank-you notes can be simple, or creative, including writing, drawing, and/or photographs. This is also the perfect time of year for children to thank people that make a difference in their lives every day.

And THANK YOU for spending your valuable time reading my blog.  I get a great deal of pleasure from being able to share what I learned during 30-plus years of teaching, and hopefully to continue to make a difference.  But, without my followers and readers, my blog really wouldn’t matter.  So, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you!

Happy Holidays and All the Best in 2019!

Love, Ellie
