When I was a kid the longest stretch of time was the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. As an adult it is the quickest three weeks of my life! The excitement on students' faces as they are participating in the different days has been awesome! Thanks for allowing them to dress up and have a little fun.

Several staff were at a 4 day workshop this week and had a fantastic time. Thanks to their team for their hard work and pulling together this week. I can't wait to hear more about what they learned. Coming soon.....
