Dear Greendell Families,

I hope you had a lovely Spring Break with your families! We had such beautiful weather and it was nice to see everyone out enjoying the sunshine. We have rain forecasted this week but that just means more flowers will bloom.

I hope to see you at our upcoming events this month - we have a busy Spring ahead!
