Ladies and gentlemen,

On Monday, May 16, we will be observing a day in which we express our sincerest gratitude and appreciation to a group of amazing people who made most of us who we are.

On this auspicious occasion, we would like to wish all teachers, past and present a Happy Teacher's Day. Thank you for your guidance and support in our quest to success and finding ourselves. May God bless all of you for your noble actions.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them." - John F. Kennedy
