Carol Ford travels to Madison several times a year to work with the Kindergarten classes. In September, students learned the National Anthem. In December, they sang "The Twelve Days of Christmas" with motions, and "The Book." In March they will learn, "Oh, Hey, O, Hi, Hello" and in May she will bring one of her student's in and they will play their harps for the children.

"My family has been featured in a German Magazine. My maternal grandmother, Regina Salzer, was born in Birthalm, Transylvania. Our family has been traced back seven generations and one of the magazine's editors is a distant relative. She has written an article about our family that emigrated to America, and what we have accomplished living the American Dream. The article is eight pages in length and has photos of my parents, grandparents, uncles, cousins and my immediate family. The name of the magazine is "Birthalmer Briefe," and is published in Stuttgart, Germany.
