This summer’s staff videos were a huge hit, so we thought we’d give everyone else an opportunity to express their appreciation to the staff in short videos of their own on a Community Thanks Videos page.  If you’d like to contribute, make a short 2-3 minute video thanking the staff and send it directly to Director Jim Magill.

Many of this summer’s staff have made short video greetings for their students, which you can find here at the Staff Videos page. Each program’s videos will only be available during their week, so be sure to check the page daily to see whose video will appear next!!
