Our 2nd grade explorers just finished their People Who Make a Difference unit. Students researched the life of a difference maker, how they made a positive impact, and what core values they demonstrated. They presented their research in a Living Wax Museum. #JoyfulLearning

Kudos: The My Princess & Me Dance was an incredible night of magic, laughter and dancing!

Thank you to WCS for hosting and to our sponsors: Crown Dentistry, Realtor Joy Bloom and Club Pilates. Thank you to Alicia Bielski Photography, Brad Wilson and Jess Wilson for donating their services all evening. A huge thanks to all of the parent volunteers (special thanks to Jamie Hernandez and Kiran Sibia) and NP3 Key Club students. This night was amazing because of each and every volunteer, donation and attendee. Thank you again!
