Policy Committee Meeting (Open to Public)
Mrs. Conciatore's class had a parent visitor, Mrs. Lynch (from District Office) who was in the Army. She spoke to the class about her experience in the military. In December our class, along with Mrs. Arocho's and Mrs. Polimino's classes, collected candies and snacks to send to soldiers who are overseas currently serving our country. This presentation was a culmination of our CARES project.
