“I love how the tour brought our textbook lessons to life and made it personable by relating it to Rockford.”  – Tracie  Wedoff, Third Grade, St. Rita School in Rockford

“What a great collaboration we shared over the last few months!  Each one/all of you made such a difference in what we could do at every step of Rockford’s ‘Hometown History Week.’  I heard from several sources that the third-graders treasured their activity booklets – and so did the teachers.  Thank you for everything you did.”  – Rockford Lutheran Curriculum Consultant Jane Austin and the Hometown History Week crew.
