Florence Update

December 13, 2014

Dear Florence Families,

It was a busy but wonderful week at Florence! The choir and chime choir performed for the students, families, and for the Evergreen and Watermere Assisted Living communities. Thanks to Lynda Knagg and all the volunteers - Great Job!

We finished the week with Nutcracker Day! Students, staff, and parents enjoyed a ballet performance of the Nutcracker by Dana's Dance Studio, storytelling, a Nutcracker museum, face painting, guest musicians, and fun activities . Thanks, to the co-curr team, teachers, and volunteers for making it a great day!!

We are so appreciative to PTA's Andrea Saitis for coordinating the Gifts of Time for all the Florence Staff. Thanks to all our parents for their thoughtfulness and graciousness in providing those Gifts of Time! We are so blessed to be at Florence!!

Happy Holidays!
