a special celebration of our volunteers

Mulberry is able to offer many enhancements because of the generous gift of time and talent given by parents and grandparents. Volunteers work throughout our building and from home to support learning experiences as well as family nights.

On Tuesday, April 28, from 1-2pm, we will honor these volunteers with a celebration tea. We hope to serve our volunteers as they have served us.

We are immensely proud of the work the children are doing on their Milestone assessment. There are two days remaining of the test. Testing begins promptly at 8:30, and no child may enter the room once the test has begun.
