2 Tom Thumb Alumni, Michael and Nicholas Write Letters

On June 24, we received two letters from Tom Thumb Alumni. The boys, Michael A. and Nicholas R. are 10 years old and have been friends ever since they attended Tom Thumb. Apparently both Michael and Nicholas wrote their letters on the same day and mailed them to Mrs. Brophy.

It’s very extraordinary to receive 2 letters from boys that refer to each other and remember the Tom Thumb Preschool experience. From the very beginning of the Tom Thumb Preschool, our goals have included make learning fun and social development. These 2 letters strong support our success and continued endeavor to improve the individual. These letters are sincere testimonials from our true and most important customers, the students. The following are letters as written by the boys:

Dear Mrs. Brophy
I’m 10 years old and going into the 5th grade! I remember when my friend, Nick R. and I graduated from our 2nd year of preschool. Nick and I also played the drums in the graduation ceremony. That was so fun! I also remember after the graduation ceremony. We had an AWESOME pool party with ice cream. The best part was the Mini Olympics! I won 1st place. I also want to thank Ms Greene and Ms. Madame for teaching us!
Michael A.
