George Hall Remodel

Over the Intersession Break there were around 200 volunteers that came to help update the school office and the LGI.  The LGI has been completely transformed.  We want you to come see you new space on May 14.  Thank you to the volunteers from the community and Menlo Park Presbyterian Church for coming to George Hall as part of the Compassion Weekend Project.
