Here at Readiness, the Psychologists have been helping the children learn to identify and cope with their feelings and about the importance of kindness. On Ms. Delores' last day, the children wanted to share a song they had been practicing with their Teachers, so they could say goodbye to a special member of their school family.
The photo booth of this year's theme was travel and photos with cultural headwear. The kids and staff had lots of fun.
