Some of you may remember Marco, who was featured in our 2008 gift catalog. Marco entered New Hope School when he was five years old. He was very insecure and did not relate well with his other classmates because of speech problems. (Here’s a picture of Marco with his first preschool teacher.)
Marco began attending speech therapy, and over time he was able to better adapt to school and his peers. Fast forward to the start of the 2010 school year, when we checked in with Marco for a grant report. Now, he is happy in school, enjoys participating in activities, and works extra hard to learn his lessons.
