We are pleased to announce that, starting October 28th, our kindergarten class will be participating in the Roots of Empathy program.  Jessica Reveley, a teacher in our district who is on maternity leave, and baby Drew will be coming into the kindergarten class once a month to teach the students about what happens for a baby in the first year of life.  Andrea Hollingsworth, our StrongStart (ELF) educator is our facilitator and will be doing pre-baby and post-baby visits with Malindi's class as well... this is a volunteer position and we are so lucky to have Andrea, Jessica, and baby Drew with us this year!
