Community Snack Sponsors:

Our kids attend schools all week then arrive bright and early Saturday mornings  for more learning and continuing learning and playing until 1pm or 3pm if they need to make up a project management class.  They tell me the classes aren’t school.  One says it’s like a field trip.

We’d like to thank the following community sponsors for donating breakfast, coffee and snacks for our kids and their parents – our future leaders.  Please patronize and tell them PJMan sent you
