Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 'Evening of Celebration' last week. It was an incredible night and we as a staff left energized and excited. We hope that you enjoyed the event as well and look forward to your feedback. Here are some highlights from the event:
Monday Morning Reflection: Meet Steven
The Mix at Arbor Place has been nothing short of an amazing internship so far. I enjoy coming in everyday to work with fellow staff members to provide a fun and safe environment for these children after school. I like the variety of programs Arbor Place offers and how they are all beneficial to the development of the children. Here at The Mix I work with the students in a photography class. They are beginning to learn a little about photography and how to use a digital camera. I am also the co-producer of our very own news cast called “Mix News”, providing everyone with the latest scoop here at Arbor Place. My intent with these projects is to help the student tap into their creative side and develop a passion and talent in the arts, whether it’s through photography or being in front of the camera. I couldn’t ask for a better experience.
