ALCMC – Practice Makes Perfect

Hello Garden Friends,ALCMC - May 17, 2016 - 2 of 2

The final countdown begins and next week is the big showcase! Today we finished up our powerpoint slides and even got around to practicing the performance for one another. I’m so proud of these students, it was really heartwarming to look back on our progress and hear what they remember about the experience.

To the side, is a picture of the garden absolutely going off in the beautiful spring weather. Participants in next weeks showcase will have the opportunity to check it out in person after listening to the student’s stories.

Until then!
