Something new (for K-3 fams):
“Parent-Led” Workshop this week: Hand Lettering with Kaitlin. Our own dean of students, Kaitlin Toon, will lead a workshop on hand lettering (adapted from a middle school seminar she is leading). This workshop will be 12:40-1:40. If there is sufficient interest, we may be able to have her come back for a second dayJ This is a great opportunity for kids to work on ways to give their visual creations some POP and try something new. Please RSVP.
