Touching Thank You Note From Judith Viorst

DEAR  BOYS AND GIRLS OF PORT SALERNO ELEMENTARY.   I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT VISITING WITH YOU TODAY WAS A VERY, VERY SPECIAL EXPERIENCE FOR ME.  YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT I TALK TO KIDS IN LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS  OF DIFFERENT  SCHOOLS, AND  THAT I VERY MUCH  ENJOY DOING IT.  BUT I FOUND  YOUR SCHOOL AND YOU KIDS PARTICULARLY SPECIAL–IN FACT SUPER-SPECIAL AND QUITE WONDERFUL.  YOU LISTENED WELL.  YOU ASKED EXCELLENT QUESTIONS.  AND YOUR ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS–WHEN I ASKED YOU TO GIVE ME THE NAMES OF  ALL KINDS OF  FEELINGS; WHEN I ASKED YOU TO  TELL ME WHAT YOU’D GET RID OF IF YOU WERE IN CHARGE OF THE WORLD–WERE SO EXCELLENT, SO INTERESTING, AND SO MUCH FUN FOR ME TO LISTEN TO THAT I DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO GO BACK HOME TO  MY HOUSE IN WASHINGTON.  I ALSO WANT TO SAY THAT YOU HAD SUCH GOOD LISTENING MANNERS THAT I COULD HARDLY BELIEVE I WAS TALKING TO KIDS YOUR AGE.

SO–THANK YOU FOR BEING AN OUTSTANDING AUDIENCE.  I LOVED LOVED LOVED MEETING YOU, AND YOUR QUITE AMAZING TEACHERS.  I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER PORT SALERNO ELEMENTARY.

YOUR FRIEND,
JUDITH VIORST
