Students recently participated in our Lovely Ladies & Dapper Dudes workshops in preparation for our annual Dress Your Best luncheon. This year our ladies created bracelets to wear and our dudes chose neckties and learned how to tie them. We are thankful for the volunteers from our school district and community who joined the students to help guide them during the activities. Students showed off their creations and new skills at our luncheon held on Valentine’s Day.
