    Dear CT and Loma Families,


    My Top 3 Moments of the Week...

    1. Watching the hilarious sketches from Mrs. Hulewat’s Performing Arts Class production of Fractured Fairytales!
    2. Getting to do holiday crafts with Loma kids. It certainly is the season for extra glitter!
    3. Chatting with a 3rdgrade student about the intricacies of building an “epic” Minecraft city.

As it becomes more and more popular with our mountain community, residents look forward to donating in this way, especially before the holidays.
