Dear Canaseraga Parent/Guardian,
We would like to thank you all for the wonderful turnouts we have had for our FABLES Events this school year. Our students have had a fantastic time learning about everything from poetry and journaling to WWII diaries and letters. We have taken a literary journey and on the way picked up so many fascinating facts about our own creative potential. We hope you will join us again next year as we bring new FABLES topics to our afterschool program and hopefully inspire more students.
