Dear Heth-Washington Family,

While I know that most everyone has heard that I am moving to Corydon Elementary next school year, I wanted to send a heartfelt letter to our families.
I want you to know how much everyone means to me. I have learned so much in my 13 years. We have the best of times with field days, celebrations, give aways, study trips, ice cream, movies, music programs, family literacy nights, awards ceremonies, water fights, and the list goes on. We have survived the worst of times with the unexpected loss of parents, grandparents, and siblings.

We have grown academically, socially, and emotionally. We have the greatest faculty and staff that are always there to go above and beyond for our students. The community rallies around the needs of our students and volunteers their time and resources to support them. Our students are amazing and resilient. They love school and rush to get inside everyday. Most are eager to learn and tell us how much they will miss us when we leave for a holiday. Heth is a special place that will always hold a special place in my heart.
Mrs. Lanham is joining a great family. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it.

Good job at Heth Washington. Good luck at CES

We will miss you greatly. Best of luck at corydon. I knew this day would come since your great at your job.

Congratulations on your new job. I’m very excited that my two youngest will now get to have you as their principal just as PJ and Brandon did.

You have been the greatest principal I have ever come across. We love having you as a principal. It's hard to see a principal or teacher leave a school that had a great impact on your childrens lives. Thank you so much for everything you have done for my children and family. We appreciate you more than you will ever know. We love you and we wish you well on your next journey. 😘

Mrs.Ellett you will be missed by many
