"Dear Ambassador Team at Berlin City Auto Group,
It is with deep and sincere gratitude that we welcome your Drive for Education Foundation awards of $3,500 to both Colchester Middle School and Malletts Bay School!
Because of your generous partnership, Colchester Middle School will strengthen its students' educational offerings by increasing its laptop inventory for use with the Young Writers Project as well as with mathematics, reading, science, and technological skill building. This partnership will allow our educators to further adapt their teaching environments, making their instruction more accessible and their curriculum more diverse, and it will fortify our students' understanding and demonstration of their learning. Your collaboration with Malletts Bay School will support the purchase of books for a balanced reading instruction model, helping our educators to deliver even more effective instruction and helping to close achievement gaps among our students. The long-term and far-reaching impacts of your gifts are beyond measure.
We were also very touched by the significant efforts you made to personalize the awards ceremony with the presentation checks and the way you so thoughtfully provided refreshments and gifts. The formality of the event especially underscored its importance for our student delegates and truly made them feel valued and distinguished. Your efforts created an important, resounding impact.
To further express our gratitude, we have widely publicized your support to the press as well as on CSD Spotlight (www.csdspotlight.org) and on our Facebook page.
We invite you to touch base with us at any time to see how your generous funds are helping to enhance our students' educational experiences. If we may be of service to you at any time, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you again?we are grateful to you for your support!"
