The story is told about a Christian missionary named Boniface (originally called Winfred) who was commissioned as a missionary to the German pagans in early 700s AD. It was late in December (appx 722 AD), after having made an arduous journey in cold and difficult weather, Boniface, and his band of brothers, came upon the village where he was going to minister the Gospel.

I just wanted to say thank you and let you know what a difference Spring Hill Academy Preschool has made in McKenna’s life. She has only been there for two months, and she is a different child, both academically and behaviorally. McKenna has been going to preschool for three years, and was only able to recognize five letters and one number at the end of last year. She was often in trouble for misbehaving, and was frequently sent to the office at school. Now, after two months with you, she knows all her letters, their sounds, her vowels, all the numbers, and some Spanish words. I have no doubt in my mind she will be ready for Kindergarten next year. One night at dinner, out of the blue, she started saying the Pledge to the Bible, and knew every word. I had tears in my eyes. She tells me her Bible verses and Commandments, and sings songs too. I am so proud of her achievements, and the way she is excited to learn more. She tells me she can’t wait to pass her letters and move up to the next class. Her behavior has improved at home too, and she is interacting and playing with her sisters and friends so much better. She now has great manners, says sweet things, asks permission before doing things, listens and does what I ask her to do, and controls herself much better. I honestly didn’t know what I was going to do with her before this. Spring Hill Academy Preschool has been the best positive influence on McKenna, and our family, and I can’t thank you and your wonderful staff enough. I have found everyone there to be so kind, caring, helpful, and loving, and McKenna looks forward to going there every day. From the very first phone call I made to the school, it has felt like this is where we belong. It has changed our lives for the better. I don’t know how you do all that you do, but from the bottom of my heart, thank you all. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds.Michelle Kumpf
