To celebrate UN Day, elementary and middle school student ambassadors gave presentations on China, India, Kenya, Poland, Puerto Rico and Ukraine. Lower Elementary students were treated to a delicious […]

Students delight in helping others and they feel good about themselves when providing even a simple act of kindness!
