“As we approach Thanksgiving, we feel compelled to let you know how much we appreciate what you do for our kids and the broader community. Your steadfast commitment to the art form and selfless love for our community is apparent each and every time we walk through your doors. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving.”
This was a card we got a few weeks ago here at Kuk Sool Won of St. Paul, and I’m “re-gifting” it to every school owner and instructor that I know. It’s fantastic when we get these cards and letters or words of praise in person, but when we don’t, we’ve got this to look back at to help us remember that people notice.
Your students appreciate what you do; their parents appreciate what you do; they may not know it, but their families, other teachers, bosses, employees, and the folks in line with them at the bank appreciate what you do. You’re making a positive difference in the lives of your students. So, thank you.
