We told the K-2 students about our "win" from 100 Women Who Care.

I Love Kindergarten!



We love our new "I Love Kindergarten" shirts and sweatshirts! If anyone wants a shirt who didn't order one, we could send in a second order if enough people were interested. T-shirts are $12.95, and include the names of all the kindergarten students on the back. There are also sweatshirts and pants.
