I just wanted to let you and Mr. Thom know that I really appreciate you guys. I might not be the best student at times but I really appreciate you guys for pushing me forward and helping me out when I needed. You guys encourage me to be successful in life and I'm really thankful for you both.


Dear Ms. Joy and Mr. Jesse,

     I am glad I came to Leap. My Life has changed thanks to everyone, Mr. Jesse and Ms. Joy. This makes it easier to function in school. It's much easier and at my pace. I am so glad to have everyone here. I should have come here years ago. I love Ms. Joy and Mr. Jesse, they are the nicest and greatest teachers ever! I want you to know how special you are to me. Though I'm unstable yet, I know that you, and I want you to see, that you made a difference in my life, thank you. I don't know if I can ever repay you.

Dear Mrs Miller and Mr. Steve,

      Thank you guys for all the help you have given me to help me be my best and start at a regular high-school. I appreciate you being able to calm me down when I needed it. I am loving it down here. I am having an extended summer because I haven't started yet, waiting on paperwork, but I will start soon. Thanks for all the great memories. Can't wait to hear back from you.

Love ya'll

p.s. I already am getting a southern accent.

       I would like to thank the staff at LEAP for all the support. I would like to thank Miss Barton for teaching me the things I didn't know. I would like to thank Mr. Thom for helping me be successful at the LEAP Program. I would like to thank Mr. H. for being a positive role model, Mrs. P. for always being positive in the morning when I first walk in the building, and Mr. Hodge and I go deeper than the LEAP Program. I would like to thank everyone at the LEAP Program for making me a better person.

Dear Mr. H.,

       Thanks for everything. My talks with you really helped me out and gave me a better perspective on life and others things in general. I found out that acting like an inconsiderate individual will not take me anywhere in life. You taught me to think before I act and to be more willing to listen to others. I am really thankful for getting to meet you and hopefully we'll see each other in the future.

Dear LEAP Staff,

       I would like to thank each and every one of you for being there for me. During the days that I struggled, there was always someone right there to either give me a pep talk or smack me in the back of the head if need be. Each teacher has gotten to know me as a person, and after three years, they still don't know what to do with me. Mr. Thom now has seen me at [my] worst moments and has done his best to help me have a successful day. He's seen me steadily become a leader in the classroom. Took a while, but it's better late than never... right? Anyways, those I'm going to miss are Mr. Thom and Mr. H.

      I'm going to miss working in the snackshop because that was time I got to see every teacher, I took the time to joke around with them. Whether it'd be Mr. Jeff and his height, Mr. H. and his shiny head, Ms. Prince and her love for chocolate pretzels, or Ms. Jackson and her cheerful spirit... I'm going to miss it all. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for helping me become a better person.

        Hello everyone! I just want to thank you all, especially Mr. Jarvis, Mr. Hepler, and Mr. Dave for helping to straighten my act out so I could do something with my life. It may seem like your jobs are to babysit the outcasts of society but I was one of them. You guys helped give me the wake-up call I needed to become a better person and a valuable member of society. My third grade handwriting still needs improved but I'll get there. With every felon, thief, teen mom, drug addict, that walks through your doors is the potential for a good person who just grew up the wrong way. If it weren't for the LEAP Program I wouldn't have made it and would likely be in jail. But instead I'm serving my country, one of the highest honors and most self-fulfilling accomplishments someone can do. I wish you all the best and thank you all. What you do changes the world and makes it a better place filled with people who turn their acts around and make something of themselves. 

       You all changed my life. Thank you.

Any student who wants to send a letter about their experience at LEAP is welcome to do so. We look forward to hearing from you.
