A big congratulations on initiating the LEAP program this year. It is one of the smartest, most effective and most supportive educational programs I have ever seen. I love the way the kids are protected and nurtured, while at the same time slowly exposed to high school life. It will make a full transition to high school so much easier, and ensure they have the tools to handle more aggressive work. Grace has often told me she wishes she had a leap program and had a chance to ease into things like public speaking.
I was struck last night by the way the celebration focused on each child equally and individually, no one valued more or less. The kids functioned not only as a unit, but also as strong individuals ready to take the next step.
As Grace is joyously planting at Arrowhead farms and Ella is excitedly rehearsing for Hello Dolly, I want to say unequivocally that we could not be happier with the girls experience at Sparhawk.
