To The Editor:

On May 30 I had the opportunity to attend the awards ceremony at Autumn Hill School in Union. My son has been enrolled there for several years and has benefited from all they offer.

After watching the staff (from the principal, teachers, aides, cooks, all the therapists, P.E teacher, nurse, bus drivers and all the volunteers), I don’t think I’ve ever met a more caring and patient group of individuals.

Just watching them interact with the students and maintain a calm demeanor is something they should be thanked for. I don’t know if they get the thanks they deserve for doing an amazing job and making sure the children under their charge and care feel important.

If not, then I want to be the first to personally thank the entire school for all you have done for my son and all his friends and schoolmates.

You make such a huge difference in so many lives.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
