We are offering two special retreats for our District PK’s and MK’s – one for those currently enrolled in grades seven through twelve, and one for those in grades two through six! Both retreats will meet at the same time at the Bongiorno Conference Center, but participants will be housed separately and will have different programs! More details are below:
