Kelley at Downtown Design took an afternoon to teach Zion, Cora, Mrs. Minger & Mrs. Vogel how to design files with software programming for students to be able to create projects utilizing textiles in the Maker Space. These community partnerships allow us to expand learning opportunities in our area.

The holidays may be over and the students are back in session, but we couldn't resist showing a couple photos from before break when the Grinch stopped by Franklin Preschool. He wanted to thank the students for helping his heart grow with their acts of kindness and giving throughout the month of December. He also got to visit each room and have a "snowball" fight. The kids loved it!
