School's Out for Summer

Where do teachers go immediately after the last school bell rings for summer? Orcas Island! I met this great group of teachers at my concert from Ridgecrest Elementary School in Puyallup. From left to right are Laurie Laramie, Heather Holdeman, me (Christopher Peacock), Barb Frye, and Sue Gronhovd. Heather sent this kind note I want to share:

I was so thrilled to be able to introduce them to your beautiful music and a little history behind Rosario Resort. I first saw you last summer with my husband and fell in love with the sounds of Orcas that magically emanated from you - throughout the school year I was instantly transported to my "happy place" even in the midst of the chaos of my 2nd grade classroom! Your music never failed to calm the buzzing energy of my kids (or at least direct it in a productive direction)! Thank you!!

I will see you again on my next trip!

Sincerely (rested and relaxed),

-- Heather

Thank you Heather!
