After 25 minutes of sharing in the foursome, we will get back to the large group to report back about how it went.

Annual session this year is Virtual.  However the Children’s program is exclusively offering small in person gatherings for up to 5 families together in various locations across CA. These field trips are coordinated by the Children’s program committee and will have 2 teachers present. It’s a great opportunity for families to gather in a limited way and start to ease back into a world of social gatherings.
