"As always, the kids you send over did a great job of covering all the points that you have listed below. The High School students were prepared, able to keep the groups focused (most of the time-even we teachers can't do it all the time!), and presented their required information in a fun way.


In all, they did a fine job. Please let them know how much the kids LOVE having them come over. The fact that they are "Big Kids" alone causes my kids to take pause and listen to what their message is."
