    Autumn GreetingsAs we embark on a newschool year, Im reminded of

    all the great things we have

    already accomplished at

    CDCF, in 2011. Visits to

    Harvard, students enrolling in

    college, and families being

    changed by education , have

    become the norm.With this

    said we are well aware that

    none of this would be possible

    if each and every one of you

    werent behind us, pushing usforward.
