A Story For You - From Parent Michelle Flippin

As shared with Sra. Sol...

Hello Sol!!

I was thinking of you yesterday and wanted to share this story with you.
Byron and Nora started playing travel soccer this fall.  Yesterday Nora's South County played a team from Providence -- all of the girls on the team spoke Spanish.  At the end of the game they give high-5s and thank the other team for coming.  Nora said in Spanish, "I hope you liked the soccer game." and some of the girls said the same thing back.

You are opening the world to them, Sol -- thank you!!!
