"I'd like to send a note of appreciation for Monday's Family Movie Night. My sons really enjoyed themselves and I thought it was an excellent idea.... both as a fundraiser and an opportunity for kids and parents/caregivers to spend some quality time together.
Thank you to the teachers and staff who lengthened their day to coordinate and attend this event. "
-Parent of 2nd & 3rd grade children
"I am truly grateful for the hard work and dedication of teachers on behalf of our children. It sometimes may be a thankless job, but please know that we parents are aware of your sacrifice and dedication and your help in raising and teaching our children!"

Reach the World - Our global traveler Skyping partnership
"In my opinion this is a great learning experience for Mandy and the other children. It gives them first hand knowledge of different countries and their cultures. I especially hope this encourages them to one day travel and see different countries. I wish my school had something simliar to this."
-Parent of Mandy Wu, 7-319
"Reach the world is a great program for my son. He learns more about so many other countries and how they were formed, their economy, architecture, languages, and most importantly their culture...all from real people."
-Parent of Santiago Galeano, 7-319
"Aside from the ability to show the kids the world beyond America, this program is also imperative specifically in today's political world. For Gianna, I could enjoy the excitement when she came home and shared 'meeting' a Chinese teenager and sharing first-hand what she learned from him. It wasn't just another story being retold, but a practical experience that helped her better grasp the differences and similarities. It's wonderful! Love it, keep it up!"
-Parent of Gianna Goje, 6-310
