Student of the week!

Liam was our student of the week! He was very excited to have the opportunity to FINALLY get his chance in the fluffy chair (his name was the last one in the cup). Liam wants to be a cook when he grows up just like his dad. He also enjoys art class the best because he is extremely creative and can use various supplies. Spiderman 3 is a comic he is interested in reading lately, and his favorite color is blue. He also has a fish named Flip and two cats named Kitty and Ary (not sure if Ary is spelled correctly). I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about our student of the week Liam.
