Community Resources

Below are links to local family services, libraries, museums, and activities.  It is fundamental that children go out, explore, think critically, inquire, learn, observe, and have fun!  Play leads to passion and passion leads to purpose!  There are so many places in or near our community that will open their world, introduce them to vocabulary and concepts, and even assist in reading comprehension.
