After the reflection of the past year, groups can set                    1:00pm—5:00pm
goals. As a family, goals can be to spend more time
together, talk more about school work, spend time
reading together, or simply to work on communicating                 HERE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING:
better with brothers and sisters.
                                                                     •   CARNIVAL EVENTS: cake walk, beanbag
Individual goals are important in creating a feeling of                  toss, pingpong toss, lollipop tree, fishing,
efficacy and success within children. The goals should                   and more!
