After 20 wonderful years, our school is now closed.

To our friends, neighbors, and wonderful families - past and present,

It was in June 1997 that we first opened the doors of Imagination Preschool. Who would have thought that 20 years later, we would have had over 2,500 students come through those doors and graduate into eventual doctors, lawyers, police officers, teachers and parents themselves. Each of these students has a unique and special story, and one that we have been honored to be a part of.

And so it is with the saddest heart that I have to write this letter and let you know that our lease with the building we are in has concluded. Since last summer we have been looking into finding a new home for our school; but unfortunately, we have been unsuccessful. And so, after our Graduation and Moving-Up ceremonies in June, we have decided to close the school and join the ranks of the retired.

As we teach our children, when you start an adventure you don't always know where it will take you; and our adventure took us to so many people we will never forget. It would be a very long letter indeed if we thanked them all, but know that your love, dedication and support have touched us so deeply.

To the teachers who have taught all of us to love and play, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You brought out the best in each of us - and taught us all to be better citizens of the world.

And so now we start our next adventure - and while nothing can compare to the joy and satisfaction of the past twenty years, we both look forward to whatever the next twenty years will bring.

Miss Eileen
