Photographer Suzanne Saroff takes photographs of fruit distorted through glasses filled with water. Can you find a piece of fruit, a flower, or a toy to distort at your house? Next, fill a couple of glasses with water to see how the curvature of the glass and the water change your view of the item.
Practicing social distancing while supporting local businesses and MZES family.
We're doing the best we can with 2FT working parents (one Essential worker out of the home, one figuring it out hour by hour), So thankful for our patient and loving CD and 1st Grade teachers!!

GOOD BOOKS ARE SO IMPORTANT to a child's . That's why we dropped off this "Little Library" of new books to the at Mt. Zion Elementary on last week. We love partnering with Charleston County School District to give our children the very best start on their education.


What a great event tomorrow at Haut Gap Middle School!

For kindergarten and 1st grade library classes we read Pete the Cat's Groovy Imagination and then used our imaginations to create whatever we could using just our art boxes, 4 pieces of construction paper and masking tape. What imaginative Wildcats we have!
