This week we had a Mother’s Day themed Support Group. One of our own P255Q@P397 paras, Celeste Astudillo, came by and taught our parents how to make colorful paper flowers. Parents enjoyed an opportunity to talk and share their stories while making beautiful flowers. Thank you Celeste!
The P255Q PTA hosted a Parent Valentine’s Day Paint Day. One of our own PTA dads(Jon Durand) came today to demonstrate how to paint and decorate ceramic mugs. It was a great opportunity for P255Q parents to get together, to talk while having a cup of coffee and to have some time just for themselves.
