Dear families and friends,

As a parent, I cherish the guidance, passion, and enthusiasm Catlin Gabel teachers give our children. But they also give something more: they give of themselves. Every day, these teachers celebrate our children’s strengths and support them in their challenges.

It has been amazing to see my three children grow as individuals and accomplished learners as a result of the relationships they have forged with their teachers. Catlin Gabel teachers work hard to know our children on a deep level and respond to their individual needs. For each of my children, there has been more than one teacher who has had a lasting impact on their lives.

With these thoughts in mind, I hope you will join me by making a contribution and writing a note of appreciation to your child’s teachers before the end of the school year.

Our teachers are truly touched when they read the notes written by the families who have taken the time to honor them. It’s a profound and powerful way for the entire family to say “thank you” for the time and energy Catlin Gabel teachers devote to our children.

Warmest regards,

Abby Nagy
