Spring Fling - Branching OUT!

  • Spring Fling - Branching OUT! (Observing & Understanding Together)

    This year, Spring Fling is more than Bubble Bus, food trucks and sensory play. It's an intentional time to Observe & Understand Together.

    Spring Fling - Branching OUT!
    April 25th, 6-7:15pm

    We want to learn more about your family so we are "branching out" to provide an opportunity for families to showcase their cultures. Please consider volunteering by creating an exhibit to share your culture. Exhibit suggestions are pictures, maps, games, clothing, language examples, flags, attractions and/or food/drink. You do not have to stay present at the booth so you can still enjoy the event with your child.

    Please RSVP by 3/25 if you are interested by completing survey.

    Contact Kathy Krus (314.213.6100 - extension 3603) with any questions.
