700 Flowers

A dear co-worker, who serves as our assistant principal, is retiring after this school year. She had requested that no fuss be made and an effort was made to respect that wish. A party was given in her honor week before last. A new camellia garden was planted and dedicated in her name, as she is a lover of flowers and grows many varieties of camellias at her home. As she was led from the party to see the garden, staff members lined the sidewalk, in salute to her. All along the way, were paper flowers attached to sticks and put in the class gardens. Each flower had been made for her by one of the children in the school. All had names and some had notes to her and they were each unique. It was  very sweet.
