I hope everyone's holiday is going well.
I recieved a link from Lon Woodbury's website, Struggling Teens, and he is asking for testimonials from current and alumni families from programs across the Nation.
He wants this to be a way for parents who are making decisions about their teen to have real testimonies from families about the school they are looking at. As many of you know, it can be difficult to navigate through all the programs to find one that fits your teen--and is good. This would be a great tool to help them.
Here is the link below. If you are comfortable putting your name out there, we think this can really help.
Thanks for taking the time to give your opinion. It matters.

Testimonials about private parent-choice resources are on the web site at
Letters To The Editor
This section is for parents and ex-students to describe their personal experience with a residential school or program as a help to parents new to considering a placement.
For a letter to be accepted, it must include the writer’s full real name, location and a way for direct contact, either a phone number or valid e- mail address, or both. It also must be about a specific program rather than a collection of programs.
We are open to publishing both positive and negative experiences, so long as the writer focuses on what they personally know (as opposed to global assumption), are a legal adult or vouched for by a parent or legal guardian, and are willing to be identified.
We will leave letters online until we receive a request from the writer to remove it.
All letters herein (marked or not) are Copyright © Woodbury Reports, Inc. All Rights Reserved. (They may not be reproduced without written approval of the publisher.)
We hope this feature will prove to be valuable for all. –Lon Woodbury, IECA, CEP.

I was going through some of the various pictures we had laying inside the computer and thought that people should really see some of the awesome, funny, and just quirkey stuff that the students put together while they are here.
This is from the girls :).
A halloween picture from last year.

Black Belt cookie.

Just an awesome picture.
