Thursdays the NEW “Lil’ Masters Art Class” starts its first 4 week program with Mrs. Joni from 1-2pm!

NEW FLOORING IS COMING!

We have raised enough money to replace some more floors in our classrooms but WE NEED SOME HELP tearing out the old floor and preparing it for the new! Can you give us an hour of time Sat. April 1 between 8am and noon? Please let us know what time you can come help so that we can get the floor prepared for the contractor to come in during the Spring Break.
