Dear Kent, 

       Thank you for the Visions of the P.A.S.T. program that you put on this year.  My students had a wonderful time learning about history.   Your staff was so good with my sixth graders.  They broke things down to a child's level.  The actors also did a great job of allowing the students to participate in hands-on activities.  By making their presentations hands-on, they involved my students and make the lessons much more entertaining.  The hands-on activities helped personalize the Arkansas History for my students.  I can not say thank you enough for all that your staff did to help me to teach history.  I honestly feel like each of my students gained the knowledge in one day that would have taken me about one month to teach.  Sincerely,

Steven M. Weber, Richland Elementary School, West Memphis, Arkansas
