Special thanks to our awesome Board of Directors who tirelessly work to make sure Little Wonders is the best it can be. You are wonderful leaders and we appreciate all you do!!!
Our amazing class liaisons, Daphne, Davina, Betsy, Sheri, Brittney, Caroline, Krissa, Karin and Frances also deserve a shout out especially for all their work on the photos for our beloved placemat project. Special thanks also to Lindsey, our liaison assistant, Teacher Suzanne and our placemat editors Marni and Spencer. Our placemats should be ready prior to the holiday break and we have this amazing team to thank.
