All Zervas students will participate in a Creative Arts and Sciences program during the month of March! A huge THANK YOU to Brandy Blakely, Hanneke de Vlaam, and Karen Burzdak for organizing CAS for our children. It’s been a tough year, and CAS has had to organize the presentations under complicated and constantly changing conditions. Thank you Brandy, Hanneke, and Karen!
All CAS workshops have been organized in coordination with the Zervas teachers to enhance your student’s literacy curriculum. These programs are funded entirely by the Zervas PTO.
