We are very proud of our latest and greatest after school activity, “Snack & Paint,” led by Art Specialist Jose Sosa. Students and parents each painted their very own rendition of our school mascot, Charlie the Bulldog, while snacking, chatting and having fun. We can’t wait to do this again! Enjoy our video! 🎨 🍪 🖌️
