Happy Administrative Professionals Day to Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Rodriguez! The quote that says, โ€œIt takes a villlage to raise a child,โ€ ๏ฟผ originates from an African proverb that conveys the message that it takes many people to provide a safe, healthy environment for children, where children are given the security they need to develop and flourish, and to be able to realize their hopes and dreams. Not only are you this for our scholars but for staff as well. We are so blessed to have you both as part of ๏ฟผour village. Your BTWE family loves you!!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
