Happy April everyone! Now that Winter and Spring have finished battling (smile), we finally made it to a month full of blooming flowers and warming weather. Be sure to take time to find some enjoyment in the mist of the beautiful weather. Outdoor activities such as morning walks, bike rides and jogging can be very beneficial to the mind and body. The month of APRIL is special for many reasons. Below are some topics/celebrations you can have with your students/staff to celebrate the month.
National Poetry Month
