Today, there are more than 400,000 people with Down syndrome living in the United States. #downsyndromeawarenessmonth

Thank you Moore Family!

Did you know that we have a little free library on our playground?

Remember Cameron and his lemonade stand? He and his family wanted to share books and reading with kids who enjoy our playground. A special thanks to the Moore family – they painted the library in memory of Easton.#EastonStrong

A special thanks to Sunflower Bank for your generous donation to help us keep the library full!
