I'm One with Poe; Poe Is with Me

Wow--what a stellar year for 5th graders! As we head into our final days at Poe, our hearts are full of gratitude for our beloved, wonderful Poe teachers and staff. You've not only taught our children educational lessons, but you've given them life lessons that will guide them as they leap into middle school and beyond. Plus, their amazing fine arts education will continue to fill them with joy. They will surely remember their Poe days as some of the best times of their lives.

We want to give a HUGE thank you to these 5th-grade parents for taking on the big events: Alisa McGinty and Sofi Simotas (Colonial Day), Beth Abel (T-shirts), Dorian Gray (Kemah field trip), and Anjanette Blewer (graduation). You all made this year extra memorable and fun. Also, many thanks to the incredible room parents, field trip chaperones, and many others who pitched in and made it a great last year for all the students.


May Poe be with you,

Julie Axelrad and Michelle Dugan
