You Made Us Successful

" I just want to thank you for the grant you bestowed on us last year. I was able to put poetry in our curriculum for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. We could not have done this without your grant. I want you to know how YOU made us successful. I can't tell you what a wonderful feeling it is to witness their adulation when they receive confirmation of being published. You have provided an avenue unknown to our student and a means to be successful. They will carry that memory with pride for the rest of their lives. I thank you from my heart and soul. "

Making Poetry a Part of Students' Lives

" We would like to express our thanks for the Language Arts Grant from Creative Communication. Special poetry workshops were held for interested students in 5th and 6th grade. Students created poetry on topics of their choice and shared them in a number of ways. Students read their poems on the morning announcements, had them displayed on our school "poet-tree", and created a book of poems for the school library. In summary, this grant helped us provide a school-wide event, making poetry a part of our students' lives. Thank you again for your generosity. "

Confidence of Creative Ability

" I wish to tell you the pleasure and excitement we have all had in participating in your contest. I believe the children have grown in their sincere liking of poetry and have grown in their confidence of their creative ability to express themselves in the forms. I do hope our school shall continue to enter your contest to bring out the young children's special poetic talents. "

Share the Magic of Poetry

" I was thrilled by the arrival of your congratulatory letter and the $250.00 grant check. The students and staff at Troutville Elementary are eagerly anticipating the "poetry alive" assembly and workshops in the spring. Your generous grant will enable us to share the magic of poetry and encourage future writers. Thank you for providing an avenue for young poets to have their works published. "

Recognizing Talents and Strengths

" Thank you for acknowledging our young poets at Eagleview Middle School. We are appreciative for you recognizing the students' creative talents and the strengths of the instruction from our excellent teachers! We are proud of both of them. Thank you, too, for the complementary copy of A Celebration of Young Poets. "
