First day of School- 08/13/2018

Today was the first day of school for Fresno Unified and Central Unified School District. Here at Stone Soup Fresno, was the first day of our fall Playgroup program! Joining us this year is Monica Lopez. She is our AmeriCorps Intern and  will be helping out in our Playgroup classroom. All of our parents and children for our first Monday morning session were happy and excited. There are both old and new faces to see this year. Today, they decorated their own stones to add to our Stone Soup. It was a fun-filled morning, and a good start to a new year!
