  • Until April of last year, I resided in Virginia as a long distance father. Over the years I stayed in touch with my daughter's teacher's via email and missed her school functions. Since my arrival in Illinois, I have attended every program my daughter has participated in. I am impressed with the enthusiasm displayed by the children and teachers who organized and setup your programs. The unity and togetherness of your student body is an example to others. It is good to see well mannered children who are not destined to perpetuate the racial preconceptions of prior generations. We as parents and adults should take lessons from our children. With that being said, it is important to acknowledge that our children repeat what is learned at home, and it appears we as adults recognize each other as Americans, neighbors, friends, and people. As I close, I want to acknowledge the Teachers and School Administrators who teach our children and provide positive reinforcement to the moral values learned at home. Our childrens educations is a group effort requiring communication between affected parties. Our childrens scholarship and achievement will continue to rise as we work together to train them for success.
