block rainbowsWe have been working SO hard and are getting SO close to our (finally designated) opening day! Today we visited with John at Nature’s Market and learned all about important elements to consider when designing a sales space. He also offered to let us set up our market inside his market! Whoa!!! How very generous and exciting!

The 5/6s & 6/7s plan on cutting the old ribbon and reveling in the long-awaited Grand Opening of their Market over at Nature’s Market (Time TBD) on Monday, April 4th. Please mark your calendars and spread the word as this will be one great way to showcase and celebrate the hard work of these seven amazing students and help them to feel extra successful. We will, more than likely, also set up a market inside the school. From handmade block sets, to finger puppets, cards, wearable art, tasty treats, and more, the market should have a little something for everyone!


Please enjoy this little collection of photos from this busy, busy week!
