I think and feel your program is absolutely wonderful! We are super happy with Ian’s progress and he is learning new things each and every day. I have faith in you and your teachers and program that it will be as wonderful as it was when we started the first of the year. I feel that ORSCH is a wonderful place and great environment for our children and thank you for having a space available for our son.

WE  BELIEVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We applaud you and Orsch every day.  Thank you for accepting Anna and all the others into the program who need it.  Where would we/she have been if you had limited last year’s class to 25 students (I think Anna was the 26th), or had said that you didn’t want to disrupt the group by adding her in April? She is a changed child and we feel like the luckiest parents in the world to have been able to enroll her in your big-hearted program when we did. We would NEVER be the parents to say that the next family who desperately needs Orsch, like we did, should be turned away.

I just wanted you to know how much we love and appreciate you…for all that you do, for who you are and for what you’ve given our family and the community as well.

I know Kellie already expressed both of our feelings, but I just wanted to shoot you a quick email to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I wanted to say so in person this afternoon, but I had to run off to a meeting.  You have (unsurprisingly) created a loving, caring environment in which to provide a top notch education to your students, and my daughter.  In the short time she has been at your school, I have seen her spririt, confidence, and yes, sass, come back, and it brings me a great deal of happiness, and relief; my only regret is that we did not make this decision at the beginning of the school year.  Better late than never I guess.  Thank you Jackie.



P.S.  I was really impressed with Ms. Elizabeth too.

I almost fell over last week when I walked in to pick her up and she was on stage putting on a play.  Two weeks ago, she wouldn’t even look her teacher in the eye.  As far as we are concerned, you are a hero. She told me by day three, “Mama, I feel like I have been going to Orsh for a hundred years”.  I wish we could adequately express our appreciation.

My entire intention in wanting to get together with you was to simply gush about Orsch!  I can’t say enough about how profound it has been for me to witness the magic.  Rory has grown immensely and he has found a place of empowerment and belief in himself that fuels his innate love of learning and love of life from which great and miraculous things can occur.  And he is not the only child who has received this wonderous gift…you are indeed serving in a very real and meaningful way.  Our children are truly our future and Orsch is helping make the future sparkle with hope!

Jackie, I just want you to know how much I value and appreciate all you have given and continue to give (on a 24 hour basis!) to this educational revolution.  And if I can do anything to help ease the load, I am here for you, as I know many others are as well.  PLEASE don’t hesitate to call on your support network.  We have all benefitted from your efforts and I for one have much enery to give back.

We are getting Millie a snack while she sits on the sofa, exhausted. She has had the most incredible day. Last night she couldn’t sleep with excitement, this morning she could wait to get to school and tonight she is sad that it’s all over for a few weeks and asked to go the school the 3rd week of break. When does this ever happen?

I can’t tell you how much our family loves and appreciates you all. You are really doing something that matters and that will enrich and make Millie’s life extraordinary. Thank you so much for everything you do for her and all the kids at ORSCH.

We just wanted you to know how grateful we are for your hard work, dedication and love. It really is something special!!

We hope you all have an incredible, restful and enjoyable holiday break. You deserve it most of all.

All of our love,

Stacie, Todd and Millie
