Know Thyself Quote

Dear Friend of Know Thyself,

Do you feel that there is a great need for more manners, respect and personal responsibility in our world today? If so, others must agree with you.

Within the last 2 years, we have grown from having 5 school partners to now having 13 locations, including one that is a drop-in neighborhood center – a first for Know Thyself. Two years ago, we were delivering our curriculum to about 250 students per year; and this year it looks like it will be well over 500 and perhaps even over 600.

The effect of our programming is clear. After seeing a presentation by students from Craig Montessori, a community member wrote to me the following:

I’m not blowing smoke; I was truly shocked at the results one year of this type of programming can do for a student. Manners and etiquette are unfortunately a diminishing skill set in today’s society, Know Thyself is doing great work to fill those gaps.

I hope we can count on your support this year. It is not an exaggeration to say that we could not do our programming without individual donors like you.
