This heart is popping up on our stuff now.
This year we started doing free, after school clubs at Baseline Middle School. It started with the guitar club that started at the library over last summer moving to the middle school in the fall since it was middle schoolers who came to the club and it made it easier for students to participate if they didn’t need to find a ride to the library. Right about then Nicole Guminski got involved with Foundry Hall and was interested in doing a drama club at Baseline, too. Her club was a big hit and is presenting a production of Nerd Herd on Friday, May 31st at Baseline Middle School for the general public. Continue reading “THU 5/16 School clubs”
