The mail came! There’s a package! I think it’s for us! Is it a string? Who’s it from? Can we open it? Whoa, look at this one! How’d they get the crystals to stick on? It looks like they painted it! It’s like a rainbow!
Those are only SOME of the reactions upon opening our envelope!
I have hardly been able to contain the children’s excitement after receiving so many wonderful emails from programs confirming participation in our project. They have been excitedly waiting for the mail lady every day and today they finally received what they were looking for!
Our very FIRST “Twisted Strand™” arrived from Hopmeadow Nursery School in Simsbury, CT! They wrote us an amazing letter. Their children created a magnificent ribbon! They painted and decorated them with jewels. We learned that there are ten children in their Pre-K class and that their school has 62 children total. Each student passed along a special message in their letter. We can’t wait to write back and tell them more about our school.
Thank you very much for your contribution to our project! We are ALL connected!
