Why GRMS Still Writes Letters, and the 3 Surprising Reasons You Should Open Them


Guadalupe Regional Middle School (GRMS) is mailing its annual school-wide Report Card to stakeholders this week, the last of several mailings from this past school year detailing the impact of the mission on students.

"We know most of our supporters have never sent a child to our school, that's the nature of our mission," said Michael Motyl, GRMS President. "Communicating the impact of their gift is high priority for us. The same way they have taken the time for us, we want to take time for them."

So what does mail at GRMS look like?

1. IT'S A FAMILY AFFAIR.

We never pay outside businesses to print labels, write letters,

or stuff envelopes. It's all done in- house with volunteers, parents, and/or the family members of staff.

2. WE MEAN WHAT WE WRITE!

Letters come straight from the President's desk and are often signed by hand. "I want to know who our people are, and the best way to do that is to see each name, one-by-one, even if I have to take the letters home." -Michael Motyl, Presid
