Our Wallabies (4th and 5th graders) have been mentoring our young Woodpeckers (Kindergarten and first graders) this semester, reading and practicing math with them.

The Wallabies (4th and 5th) and Wolves (6th-8th) did a fantastic job with their two performances of "Anne of Green Gables." Parents, family members, and staff were so impressed!
