Our new car rider process will most likely continue through the end of the year. We will review it carefully over the summer and let you know if we’re able to make any changes and improvements for next year. In the meantime we don’t want anyone to receive any traffic or parking tickets so please be careful. If the car rider line in the Alley (by the Marathon), is stretching out onto Pleasant Run, please continue the line on the south side of Pleasant Run (facing east towards Shelby), and turning left into the Alley. This way the line will not back up and impede traffic on Shelby or block the entrance to our new Neighbor (Marathon Gas Station).

To all of our Parents and Family Members who Picked up their Children last week at SENSE…. THANK YOU!! I know it was hectic and confusing with the changes made to our “Car Rider” line, but you all handled it so well! The patience and understanding you showed to the Staff members (me included) while we worked out the process, was very much appreciated.

Pictured is a group of amazing woman who are employed at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance. They call themselves the Sew Sisters. They regularly meet to create sewing projects together. They have been creating pillows and blankets for our families along with donations of craft supplies and hygiene items for our food pantry. The pillows pictured here will be sold at our May 5th Art Attack event. The money will go to support our art program long with helping to fund the new playground
