Hello Leopold families! 

November was full of lots of continued fun! The darker days have not impacted the good times of program. We spent lots of time continuing our positive relationships, doing projects, and made a collection of holiday wish lists for things we’d like to unwrap for our holiday event. Stay tuned! 

Just before the break, we welcomed Ms. Bekah to Team Leopold! The kids were very welcoming and have been such a huge help in familiarizing her with program. Be sure to say, “Hi!” the next time you see her! 

Winter Break is just around the corner, which comes with lots of treats!  

I’d love for us to share some holiday ideas and recipes throughout program. Please feel free to print off/submit (abrown@wisconsinyouthcompany.org) some recipes to share with everyone to add to their cookbooks! I look forward to see all the tasty recipes! 

Best,
Ms. Asendra
