Kesher Marin Newsletter May 2015

If you haven't already finalized your plans, now is a great time to register for camp and to enroll in educational programs for next school year. It can be hard to navigate the options, so if you'd like some help finding the right fit for your family, I am available to meet with you to help.  If there is something that you are looking for and not finding, contact me and let's see what we can create.  And of course pass on Kesher information to your friends!
