A thousand thanks to you all for the extraordinary program yesterday at St. Michae's Auditorium for the kindergarten through fifth-graders. I loved your description of the show commemorating the Star Spangled Banner, Eileen! You are ever the master visionary and orchestrator.

Eileen Carson of Footworks is amazing! We are so grateful to have had her back! The kids were AWESOME this afternoon. Eileen brings content, skills, and ideas that the kids enjoy, learn, and are excited about! We were certainly sad to see her go! If there was some way we could keep her forever we would!
