a thank you from pecatonica schools

Hi Bonnie,Our school would like to send a donation to the K-E-Y-S program as a thank you for your presentation here at Pecatonica. Can you send me an address for thta and your own address, my students have a thank-you note for you. That day seems to have a great impact on our students - from the presenters to the mock accident. Alisha joined the Bongiovannis the next week for a presentation at Sun Prairie High School and has a couple more on her calendar. That is an unexpected, but positive, outcome of her presentation. Thanks again,Pecatonia High School

From Monroe High School:

From Monroe High School:
Dear Bonnie:I want to personally thank you for participating in the P.A.R.T.Y. Program at the Monroe High School last week. I found it to be very moving but also the dose of reality we all need to hear. I can't image how difficult this was for you but admire your courage to do something that has such a profound effect on others. I attended the evening program overview and panel discussion for the parents and community members and I can't tell you how important I think this was for our high school students to see and hear. I have my granddaughter living with me right at the moment as her mother is in the Air Force and just got back from deployment in the Middle East. I worry every time she gets into a car with other friends her age and even though she is very conscientious, I know what peer pressure can sometimes do. I'm so grateful that she was able to see this presentation and I can only hope that my grandsons in New Glarus will have access to the same program when they reach this age. Thank you for all you are doing to try to give others the tools to make wise decisions. You are an example for all of us to follow.
