NEW ITEMS FOR OUR PLAYGROUND
 

This fall we are so thrilled with the new additions to our playground! Thank you to Mrs. Pascarella's husband Bob for building us a marvelous mud kitchen. Funding for the materials was provided by the Mallet and Suh families from their corporate donation matching programs - thank you! The children are busy cooking and creating meaningful connections.
