“This program was smooth from start to finish. The museum educator is knowledgeable about Day of the Dead and great with the kids! She mentioned each student by name during the presentation made them feel important and connected. This is a great culminating activity if you are studying Day of the Dead.”

3rd Grade Teacher, Fort Ann, NY

“I highly recommend booking ‘Celebrate the Chinese New Year’ – even in a virtual situation because students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and seemed to take a great deal of content away. My students were completely engaged and had a great deal of laughs and smiles!”

Kristen O'Connor, 1st Grade Teacher

“The Day of the Dead presentation was very well done – I would absolutely book another program with them. The crafts that complemented the virtual lesson arrived in good time and everything was great, the sessions were for the whole grade level and the price was reasonable.”
