Congratulations Class of 2021!
Thank you Titans for giving me a home for the past 11 years!
After 36 years with the VSB, I am retiring to pursue other interests - too many to list here.
Special thanks to all Titan students who spent time in the Library.
I will miss seeing you on a daily basis, whether you were finishing off homework assignments, printing out work, or just there to visit and have a chat.
To my past library monitors, I am so grateful to have worked with you.
May the years ahead be kind to you, and bring you much happiness.
Though I am leaving, I will always have fond memories of my time at Templeton,
and the friendships I have made here.
Ms. Nanda will be your full-time teacher-librarian next year,
and Mr. Cornies will be joining her for one block.
I encourage you to make the library a part of your daily routine.
Keep asking questions and keep searching for answers.
Curiosity leads to a wealth of knowledge.
Farewell Titans, from Ms. Bombino!
