By Dra. Louella Ramos-Bascos

Beloved learners, co-parents, carers, teachers, lolos and lolas, titos and titas, friends and guests, good morning.

As we come to the end of the school year, aren't we all relieved to take a break from the daily tasks of preparing our kids to school, bringing them and picking them up after class, sometimes having to haul them out of Kidz Town Play Gym, checking their YGM making sure we don't miss out an announcement or activity, and of course, sorting out their socks, if they come home with any. A moving up day is then a day to be thankful for the year that was, and that vacation is finally here. Oh well, what to let them do, rather where to send them during the summer is another thing.

When I had my first moving up day with my daughter 5 years ago, I was so excited just like most of you today. And when I saw her perform, I couldn't help but beam with pride, and I was actually teary-eyed, but didn't want to be ma-showbiz kaya I had to control myself. I'm sure you felt the same way I felt then. Huwag na kayong mahiya, I believe it is normal to be emotional seing your child shine like a real star. I bet you didn't even notice your child's classmate because you're all eyes on your little angel. So a moving up day is a day to be thankful for what our child has done, and what he has become. We all want and pray for a bright future for these children, And we, parents and teachers, should be thankful that we could provide them with a good start in their education and wholistic development here at Kiddie Toes.

Finally, a moving up day is a day to be thankful that our children are moving up to another level next school year. I am thankful that now my son can count up to 10, write, read and make sounds of the alphabet, wants to be a good spiderman, not just spiderman, wants to be a good pirate, not just any pirate. I'm looking forward to his being able to count up to hundreds and even thousands, write, read and speak words and paragraphs, discover what else he could do and could be, and explore the world creatively. I believe my Gelo can do it, because today he is moving up.

So to everyone else who believes in his or her child's next big steps, see you next school year. Good day to all.
