EDUCATION
Education Work Group presents:
AS YOU HAVE SEEN ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA...
Creciendo Juntos and Agnor-Hurt Elementary School are collaborating this year to be a space where parents and their children can learn fun international games!

It is a time to remember old childhood games that parents used to play and the music that children are learning now! Parents may also have the opportunity to meet their children's teachers and whom to talk to at school.

With the first week through, we have had amazing families come out and share us their songs from their country!

But don't miss out on our next sessions on August 7th 9:30-11:30am ! We will have piñata building for the kids to decorate!
You can RVSP or invite families to RVSP to come so we can know how many yummy food to bring:
