Mrs. Whicker's Spirits Lifted During Recovery

In the past couple of weeks, I have been overwhelmed by the words of encouragement, thoughts and prayers you have sent my way during my time of recovery from a very unexpected heart attack.  All the precious cards from students absolutely lifted my spirits and warmed my heart during my hospital stay.  I truly appreciate all the emails that were sent with words of encouragement and support.  These were definitely another reminder of just how blessed I am to be a part of the PGES community and work with THE BEST students each day.

Pleasant Grove Family,
