Last Days at our old location

The third six weeks was fast paced as we raced to pack up everything for our move into the new campus. I love these final shots of our staff and students at our old location on Standard Avenue in San Juan. I think most of us will agree we are ready for our new campus but it was nice for a little while in this cozy little school.
