The Bear Necessities
December 3, 2015
The comments included things like: "The passion for their work is so strong, it was moving to hear all of the things they do to make sure kids learn, the culture of that group is stunning, their care is so significant that I wish all kids could experience it". The one that was repeated was this "The care/passion that staff showed for their work just can't be faked, it was real, so deep". The reviews were simply overwhelming to hear, I so wish I had it a video for you to watch, it was moving. The LS Education Foundation Board Members wanted me to share with you how very thankful they are for the work you do with families and children here in LS. They felt very proud to be a part of a community that housed such a powerful program.
Your work is hard, but the power of what you do is just so deep, THANK YOU!!

Holiday Party Opportunity for a family who could benefit
We have the opportunity to choose 4 families to have a "Play it Forward" party at Paradise Park.
When: December 22, 5:00-7:00 PM
Where: Paradise Park
What: all you can eat pizza and drinks. Fun cards for arcade, foam factory, gingerbread land, rock climbing wall.
Families need to:
have students at an age that would enjoy this side of Paradise Park (not edutainment side)
could benefit from a family activity (perhaps to get away from big issues)
would attend if chosen (to your best guess)
Send me the name of the families you feel would benefit, please put "Paradise Park" in the subject line.
