                         I dreamed I stood in a studio
                       and watched two sculptors there.
                 The clay they used was a young child's mind,
                       and they fashioned it with care.
                      One was a teacher-the tools she used
                            were books, music, and art.
                The other, a parent, worked with a guiding hand
                             and a gentle, loving heart.
                  Day after day, the teacher toiled with touch
                         that was careful, deft and sure;
                      while the parent labored by the side
                       and polished and smoothed it over.
                      And when at last their work was done
                   they were proud of what they had wrought.
                    For things they had molded into the child
                           could neither be sold or bought.
                     And each agreed they would have failed
                              if each had worked alone.
                     For behind the parent, stood the school
                         and behind the teacher, the home.

    Thank you for working with your children at home, it makes all the difference in the world with their progress.
