"We love it!!!!! We will be having a Federal Review soon. We don't know the date yet, but I'm sure this will help in our Father Involvement area…. I think our Dads participation has risen at least 25% since our program adopted your newsletter!!! Although our dads have always participated, now it is so very evident! Your newsletter has made the difference. Last year our dads logged over 425 volunteer hours for the year-end. I am very proud of them. Thank you! ”
