Message from Principal Cannon
CALLING ALL MOMS! We are looking for moms who are interested in meeting every Tuesday afternoon from 1:30 - 3:00 to watch a spiritual video together and then discuss the video. You will not need a babysitter because your child(ren) will be in school. I will be leading the small group discussion. I hope you can find time in your busy schedule to join us every Tuesday starting February 19th. I have already gone through the program and the videos are very good. They are thought provoking and elicit lots of discussion. If you are interested, please email me at . I hope you can join us!
