Mrs. Blasetti was my first grade teacher. She was kind, caring, and encouraged everyone to do well. I loved being in her class. I am a second grade teacher and do my best to be the teacher to my students that your mom was to me. My deepest sympathy. Jerri Vroman

To Lois's family.....Lois was my mentor when I first came to Greater Plains School. She once gave me this advice, which I put into practice to the best of my ability. "You only have them for one year. Do the best you can with them and then send them on to someone else." I will forever be grateful to her for those words. Debby Clough
