Counselor's Corner: Austin's Got Talent
This year Austin’s theme is Austin’s Got Talent, and we are using this to showcase all of our staff and families talents! I am making a bulletin board that will have pictures of all of these amazing talents, and I need your help. I’m looking for pictures, no bigger than 4×6, of you and your talent. Whether it is cooking, dancing, singing, sewing, juggling, or any other option, I would love to see it in action.
Here is what I need:
A picture of you showing off your talent (4×6 or smaller please)
Please do not send original photos because they will be taped and stapled
You may email the photo to me Lisa Savinon (Counselor) or drop them by the office with my name on them. I will send them back to you later in the year.
All Moms...Dads...Friends...Community Members Will You Share Your Talents with Our Learners?
