I have some very sad news. Ms. Mary Ochoa, our former teacher, was tragically killed in a car crash on Thanksgiving Day. Her husband was seriously injured. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers, and hold your dear ones tight for just a moment.
I hate to break the news in this rather impersonal manner, but I thought it would be better for those of you who knew Ms. Mary to speak to your child in a way that is appropriate for them, rather than for them to hear about it some other way.
You may remember Ms. Mary’s performance to “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” at recital a couple years ago. She was a talented dancer & actor, and a loving teacher.
She is dearly loved, and will be remembered fondly.
