In an effort to create a fun forum for Eliot-Hine MS feeder families to gather, this summer Friday book swap series was born! Join feeder families and members of the community for a picnic and fun every Friday. Bring a book, leave with another. All ages and levels welcome. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you do not have a book to bring. There are extras! Contact Amber.Gove@gmail.com with any questions.
March has been very busy at Eliot-Hine! Check out the photos and highlights below:
