Everyone Matters Day
Thanks to those of you who put everything together for this event. Joirdan sent out an email before break with the following information: https://www.smore.com/s7cxw
Hopefully we can make this a great day celebrating each other!
We will be participating in Everyone Matters Day again this year. Everyone Matters Day is on April 12, 2016 and I hope that we can continue this and make a tradition out of it. The city of Plano officials are planning to come out again in the morning this year. We will share further details with the staff once we have them.
Here is a link the Everyone Matters Day website.
Thanks in advance for participating!
