Au-Some Evening

September 8, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for Fall Fun at Au-Some Evening on Friday, September 8th 5:30-7:30! Come explore apple science, light tables and sensory play in the Tinkering Tank. In the Art Studio we will learn about the adventures of “Leaf Man” and everyone can make their own leaf person to take home. Families can play and sing-along with our music teacher Miss Elsie, who will be highlighting songs for Hispanic Heritage Month. The Low Bridge Café will be open for grab and go snacks and we will have back-to-school giveaways and resources for families at the end of the night. The evening features support animals from the SPCA and student volunteers from SUNY Buffalo State’s Exceptional Education Program. Registration is now open!
