Thank You Laura, Sasha, Alex, Maddie and Nathaniel!

A huge thanks to Laura Julian, parent of Summer, and to 8th graders Alex and Sasha as well as graduates Nate and Maddie for making us look good at our Open House last week. Our prospective families appreciated the insights and experiences you shared.
