“Pirates” was theme of UPWARD's End of the Year Event
Captain Jack Sparrow was on hand this year for UPWARD’s Pirate themed End of the Year Event! He entertained the children and their families with story telling as well as showing them how to defend themselves in a sword fight! He made sure to remind them that they should try to never engage in fighting, but if they must, they needed to know how to defend themselves!
We topped the day off with a graduation for one of our high school students and three preschoolers!
