Valentines Day Service

We made crafts to bring to Brookdale Senior Living Center for Valentines Day! Unfortunately, we did not get to go due to the flu outbreak.

We Voted!

Today, we voted for mayor of Asheville. We learned about the platforms of each candidate, registered to vote, and voted in “voting booths”. They got “future voter” stickers when they finished voting. The students were excited and engaged. I will let everyone know who won once we find out the results from the real election.
