Mrs. Angala has committed to mail thank-you letters for this project by Jan 23, 2009. When donors receive such feedback, they are typically inspired to fund more student projects, so the sincerity and timeliness of Mrs. Angala's thank-you letters are critical to getting resources into the hands of more students at your school.

Thank you for fostering an environment where teachers are motivated to seek extra resources for their students!

The Team

My students were extremely excited when I told them that many good things are coming our way because they are working very hard that many people want to see them achieve. We have our class motto written on the wall: SUCCESS! NO EXCUSES!
This is the second time funded my class projects, the first was in 2007: Special Needs Making Memories.
