Thanks to your generosity at our 2003 Fall Festival, four classrooms in our school were recently equipped with new desks which allowed all classrooms to upgrade their desk conditions. This is yet another phase of our Make a Difference in Downsville started in September, 2003. Other projects, such as playground improvements, assembly of playground equipment, and landscaping are in the production stage. Very soon, each playground will have several pieces of new equipment.

Thank you for your support and thank you for allowing us to teach your children.
