Trip to France for Justin Sykes

It is important for me to introduce my son, and his accomplishments.   Justin Sykes is in the 6th grade at Academie Lafayette French Immergent School.  For those that don't know Justin is fluent in French, and speaks the language very well!  As a part of his 6th Grade Curriculum Justin is to travel to France at the end of May 2015 for 2 weeks.  This trip to France will enhance his ability to speak the language as well as provide a more broad understanding of the culture. 
This trip will total over $3700.00  and we have already pledged $1500 towards this trip.   We are asking Family, Friends, and Associates for contributions to this trip. 
As I am trying to advance my son's life, it is important for people to understand that we have an enormous family, and many friends.  We are not able to visit everyone consistently as we would like to.  We want family, and friends to take that into account when deciding if they are going to donate or not.  

What I would like family to think about is how strong is analytical skills are, reminds me of my Hubbard/Lacy roots. 

What I would like family to think about is how strong, and tenacious he is, which reminds me of my Sykes roots. 

What I would like family to think about is how strong his Indian spirit is, which reminds me of my Fluellen Roots.

What I would like family to think about is how empathetic he is, which reminds me of his Jackson roots. 

What I would like family to think about is how much he loves to swim, which reminds me so much of his Gales Roots.

Lastly,  Justin's strive for achievement reminds me of only one thing!

The plan is to have Justin communicate on the website periodically to let everyone know how the fundraiser is coming. Please  do not hesitate to reach out to me for more questions, or concerns? 

The Sykes family really appreciates you!
