Head Start Success Stories
Bagtas Letter: 02-17-2011
To Whom This May Concern:
My name is April Bagtas. My daughters have been attending Head Start for the past 8 years. My younger daughter, Gerilyn, has been going since she was 6 months old. I am a single mother of 4 girls and working 52 plus hours a week.
Without the Head Start program, I wouldn’t be able to work as much as I do. During the years, I have been talking and developing friendships with this program. All of the staff are always so wonderful and kind to me. I have never been involved in a school program so helpful.
I am writing this to let you know, without this kind of program, families like mine wouldn’t be able to do what they need to do to live a proper life. My daughter is now 5 years old and is so ready to be in kindergarten. She knows more than an average 5 year old. I am very proud of her. Thanks to the Head Start program.
