I am writing this letter to you on the day when you are start student for the week in your class at Corbell. I hope you had a great day so far at school. I know how much you love going to school, meeting your friends and teachers and doing your work. And I hope your zeal to learn and explore always stays with you – Your never-ending questions, your little experiments at home, making little crafts out of anything, those impromptu parties that you plan for everyone, your super excitement on earning houses and hotels when playing Monopoly – I do love all of them.
You know kindergarten is the most important foundation for your learning. The skills, the lessons that you learn today – you will use them in all your upcoming grades. And more importantly – the friendships that you will make now, will stay with you for a long time.
But besides learning the numbers and reading and all that is in the books, what I want for you is to utilize this time to develop the most important things you’ll need in life – To be kind and helpful to everyone; To be confident and being able to speak up for yourself needed and knowing to differentiate between what’s right and what may not be right.
Please know mom, dad and Aayush – we all love you a lot. And I sure do love that tinkling smile of yours, so do keep smiling always.
Lots of love and hugs
