iLink

iLink spent Friday, April 20 doing a day of good deeds.  Each iLink group visited various classrooms, the cafeteria, helped maintenance, and any others on campus all while caring out acts of kindness. Some students read to lower school students, others helped maintenance with routine duties, others visited the cafeteria and helped set up for lunch.  Each group was tasked with finding a way to help CA that day.
