THANK YOU

Thank you, families, for "sprucing up" our bathrooms. It's nice to see the encouraging signs, plants, and special soaps and lotions when we take a break.


If you have items to share, send them in with a note that says "Spa" and we will add them to the mix.


Also, thank you for the delicious snacks you have been providing in the break room. What a great way to keep us going and show your love!
