Quote: “I believe it is important that children receive the finest education possible. Having systems in place that begin in Early Childhood programs and continue through high school that promote a love of learning for children, affording them the best of opportunities and possibilities to fulfill their dreams is the primary goal of public education. It is our duty as parents and community members to ensure that these systems are prudent and maintained for our children and our children’s children.”

Quote:” A child is like a butterfly in the wind.  Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can.  Why compare one against the other?  Each one is different, each is special, and each is beautiful.”

This is a wonderful message and reminder that all children should grow up in the world from bias and discrimination.  All children are beautiful and unique.  With our support they can reach their dreams…at their own individual pace.
