Dear Denton Publications:
I know that you are reluctant to blow your own horn so I would like to congratulate you on receiving the Senator Paul Simon New York State Friend of Foreign Language Award from the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers. Your decision to include French language lessons in the monthly issues of Kidsville News show that you recognize the importance of teaching French in North Country Schools.
From the beginning, you worked diligently to put forward a quality product which could be used by parents and elementary teachers who have little no background in French. To do so at a time when French programs are declining in New York State has given a well needed shot in the arm to the promotion of French as viable, alive language.
Merci du fond de mon cœur,
David B. Graham
Immediate Past President, Pays du nord Chapter, American Association of Teachers of French, Past President, New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers, Morrisonville
