"I am writing you to give you a progress report on my
daughter. She was a student for two (2) years. She was blessed with
two wonderful teachers. She loved school but had one major problem,
she was very shy and would not speak to her teachers to the point
that I had to send tapes in to let them know of her vast vocabulary.
We were quite concerned that her Kindergarten class in public school
would swallow her up.
She has blossomed. Since November she has been going to first grade
for advanced reading. Last month she was asked to recite a poem
with three other children to the parent volunteer luncheon. She
had three days to practice the poem and she actually knew all the
words and led all the other children. Last week she was tested for
the gifted program and was accepted. She actually scored higher
in the verbal section!
I wanted to let you know of her progress for two reasons. One was
just to keep you informed of your former student. The second reason
was to thank you and the teachers for your true concern, love and
knowledge. You helped instill a great love for learning and especially
reading. Even though she would not speak, you saw her ability to
learn to read and included her in reading classes. She has worked
very hard to achieve all of this at 6 years old, but I give you
a great deal of credit for your help along the way. I would and
do recommend REM to all I meet. I wish you continued success
Letter # 4
REM has provided us with a safe and caring environment
for our two girls. Everyone in the school is part of a big and special
family. Our children are cared for in the same way parents care
for their kids.
We never found a place that could give us the peace of mind we have
with REM. I can be sure that my girls are being watched and loved
during their entire time at school.
Its priceless to know that our children are safe and learning
new things everyday. What a great place to be!!
