We are very sad to announce that Molly Cross is leaving us. She is headed off for a great adventure through Arizona Utah and Wyoming to climb the Tetons! She will return to Vermont to explore her passion for working with children with disabilities. She may not be far and we hope she might even be able to visit us at summer camp to teach one more class in tie dye or cook one more batch of fire-side cookies. Molly has been a fantastic counselor and we will miss her dearly.
We are very happy to announce that Michaela Silva will be joining us to take Molly’s place. Michaela is well known as a long term Apple Tree parent and ER nurse. She has taken a break from nursing and has just completed a season as an instructor for the Mt. Mansfield Academy. We are looking forward to her cool crafts and tremendous energy and enthusiasm for Afterschool and Summer Camp.
As we look forward to more beautiful Spring weather, please be sure to send your child with necessary items. Sunscreen, hat, snack and water bottles, water shoes and extra clothes will help us enjoy the outdoors comfortably.
