Firefly Session II 🧚🏽♀️
For those of who have yet to try our community give-back project, we still have spots left in Session II of Firefly Enrichment Fridays at the same low-cost as before. Sign up today for Sessions II and III of Firefly Enrichment Fridays here. Also, if you have a talent you would like to donate for 30 to 45 minutes on a Friday, just let us know! This program is made enriching by generous folks like you who are volunteering their time to be with our children each week.
