Story Time – 

Join us every Thursday at 11:30 AM for pre-school story time with Miss MaryMargaret. Children will practice early literacy skills through stories, songs and rhymes followed by a simple craft.  No registration needed.



Unfortunately, due to dwindling attendance, BEST will not be meeting this fall (2018.)  We would like to see some form of it continue, but we need help and suggestions from our students, parents and teachers.  Let us know what would be most helpful and/or if you can volunteer (teen/adult tutors and volunteers would be needed.)  Please call us at 518-674-5050.
