We will need 20 parents along with their children to participate in the Design Day. The tentative dates for this to occur are as follows: March 26, 2014, April 2 or 3, 2014. The school will notify you of the exact date. However, it is important to note that the designing process with be a 2 or 3 hour process. Lunch will be provided to the participants in attendance. After the Design Day takes place, we will need to prepare ourselves for the Community Build Day slated for Thursday, June 12, 2014 (Details will be forthcoming).
