For those kids who love to craft, Kathy Spotanski has generously offered to come talk to you on Saturday, March 21.  She would like to know what type of crafts/arts you are interested in as we are contemplating having a “craft day” once a month on Saturdays.  If you are interested, please come talk to Kathy at 2pm on March 21. Thanks!
