"Marg - that day was one of the best of my life - in all the years of teaching I have never seen anything so overwhelmingly special for the most wonderful kids in our system. Al Pichler's productions come in a close second but this was hands down incredible. You have touched the lives of so many in ways that are not duplicated in our system in any other way and likely for these kids not again in their lives.....Bask in the glow...."

"Hi Marg, I found today's track event inspiring. Thanks so much for the invite.
The real key for me was the following:
One of my students came up to me with a big grin on his face and he said,"Mr. Leung...today I'm a winner!"
(Ok...while this touched me...I have to admit I'm a little sad too because it also means that other days he doesn't feel like he is a winner:(
Anyways, I am sure it is this feeling of success that is all the reason I need to make this happen for kids.
So, I am definitely interested in taking this on. I guess I need to do some thinking about how to get it started."

"Hi Marg, Thanks so much for fitting our kids in -- they had a great day. I had two in my office after school sharing all of their ribbons, pins and their hats. They said they had "...the best day ever!"
What a great event for these kids - thank you for all of your hard work."
PS -- The weather turned out to be great :)
