Dear Parents and Guardians,

Once again the multicultural share delivered! Seems like a long time ago – but thanks to everyone who was able to make it out and to those who shared their talent on stage and in the kitchen! The food was exceptional, the talent was terrific, and this year we have a new cookbook – please be sure to secure your copy by ordering one here!

The rain has supported our garden this week ! Happy plants and gardeners, as you can see! Be sure to stop in when you can to check out the garden and see what is growing!
