Hi! This was a beautiful week and we accomplished so many things. Here is a quick run-down of our week:

Special Event!!! We are so lucky to have Ms. Flinn from The Right Brain Initiative (sponsored by the PTA) leading us with a Drama that focuses on “How do my actions and choices affect others and support me in making good decisions?” We had our first session on Wednesday and it was amazing. Please ask your child what their “imagination journey” was like.
