  • THE SCHOOL OF MYSIADLO NEVER FORGETS

    The wonderful parents and students at the Mysiadlo School of Warsaw have once again collected presents for our PromiseLand children. This year, the Santa from Mysiadlo will arrive at the Oparzno school, just before the kids head home for Christmas break.

    A special thanks to a very special friend of our PromiseKids, Michalina Gajewska, wife of our own Discipline Media President, Peter, who organized the Christmas gift collection. Can't wait to see the beaming faces of our PromiseKids when they receive their gifts. Thank you so much Michalina and all our friends at the Mysiadlo School! You are the best!
