Great SWAP Day at Newspring & Esperanza

Thank you SWAP Team and students for a great day at Newspring Art Studio and Esperanza.  We enjoyed a wonderful time with Cindy Robinson (of FreeKreations Productions) at Esperanza – as she and her friends talked with us about Legacy and Christmas.  And our Legacy Doll project at the Newspring Art Studio was beautiful and thought provoking – thank you Luiza Grandchamp!

Thank you to all of the students & volunteers!  See you at SWAP for Junior Achievement Careers with a Purpose Jan 19 2013!IMG_20121208_110739IMG_20121208_095024
