And since so many wonderful occasions and observances are celebrated during these months, there will be several extraordinary presentations on subjects ranging from celebrating diversity to volunteers contribution to society, to amazing mothers, to the history of stepping! There will be story times and crafts (coloring sheets, movies, making Mother's Day cards, etc. out of construction paper and other materials).
