A Message From Our President

Great Day with a Great Group of People during our End of the Year Meeting!

The following is a letter from the Alexandar Graham Bell Montessori School, where we donated the proceeds from the annual Midwest Furniture Golf Outing.

Dear Mark and Group,
As always, we are deeply touched by your continued support and generous donation to the school. I can assure you this donation in the amount of $7,650.00 will be put to very good use to continue our work with children who benefit from the use of cued speech.

For those of you new to the group, Cued Speech is a visual mode of communication in which mouth movements of speech combine with "cues" to make the sounds (phonemes) of traditional spoken languages look different. Cueing allows users who are deaf, hard of hearing or who have language/communication disorders to access the basic, fundamental properties of spoken languages through the use of vision.

For those of you who were fortunate to have known Bill Krause, you know how passionate he was about this school and it's growth, sustainability and continued success with children. Your willingness to continue remember him in this way is very touching for each of us at AGBMS-AEHI.

As we look back over time, we find ourselves wondering... did we remember to thank you enough for all you have done for us? For all the times you continued to support us and were there to celebrate our successes? Please accept our heartfelt thanks for all you do for the children and families we serve and for always remembering Bill and what he stood for.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~ Marcel Proust
