 We will continue to supply these lesson plans through our spring session and we will be sure to keep you updated on our program status as the State begins to open up.  Please know we will hold health and safety in the highest regard when we make decisions regarding programs for the year.

 Please stay healthy, safe, and enjoy these fun activities.  Again, please keep the videos coming. Its so much fun to watch you all practicing at home!
