SECA Day of Joy

Celebrating SECA Day of Joy at Little Fish Academy in Dorchester County. The children were read to by grandparents and community members. Each class made tie-dye shirts and danced with scarves and created heart collages and just had a ball of fun. We will celebrate SECA Day of Joy every last Friday in the month of September. Dorchester County First Steps was proud to be the sponsor!
