Today no pictures of school happenings are as important as pausing for a moment to hold sweet Ella Farmer and her family in our hearts.
Ella's mom, Kari, was a PreK teacher at our school last year. Will and Ella, her twins, accompanied Kari to work/school. Yesterday, Ella was diagnosed with leukemia and is at Dell Children's Medical Center. Ella is four years old.
Ella, Will, Kari, and Chris,
We wish each of you comfort and peace as you begin Ella's journey to recovery. Your love is Ella's first and best medicine.
