Two simple words: THANK YOU. They make up one of the most underused phrases today yet it is appropriate to be said in almost any situation. Everyone should be using this phrase everyday – Miriam being no exception.
So many people invest their time, talent, and resources in the Miriam community to ensure our mission of empowering unique learners by building confidence and a foundation for success happens every day. With their dedication, Miriam is able to continue our 100+ years of service in the St. Louis region. And for that, we THANK YOU.
THANK YOU to our parents who entrust Miriam to identify the educational needs of their child and provide the solutions necessary for a positive outcome. Your trust in our mission and us is humbling!
THANK YOU to our faculty and staff who dedicate their time day in and day out to ensure Miriam’s unique learners are given an individualized education to thrive and grow. Their commitment makes sure that each student is building confidence and a foundation for success every day. You are truly incredible!
THANK YOU to our many volunteers who give of their time and talent for any occasion. Whether it is volunteering at the Switching Post, soliciting trivia night sponsorships, or making the gymnasium look fabulous for prom, each of you bring unique talents that benefit each event. You are inspiring!
THANK YOU to our entire Miriam community for supporting with monetary gifts year in and year out. Your generous donations allow Miriam to provide financial support to our families through the Variable Tuition Assistance program, invest in our future with the creation of an endowment fund, or recruit and retain our specialized faculty.
As a parent of a child with learning disabilities, I know the importance of a community that helps each other. As a member of the development team, I am very fortunate to be a part of this very special organization. As a person who believes in Miriam, THANK YOU for believing with me!
