Imagine me with a huge smile on my face that represents how grateful I am for the work you do each day with students and arts education! From the bottom of my heart - THANK YOU and HAPPY TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY! The weather certainly has been beautiful and to add to it in the last week on my walks, I have seen a red fox, 4 eagles, 2 deer and numerous wild flowers popping! YAHOOOO!
