Our Last two sessions with Brain Power Wellness are coming up so fast! Let's leave with a bang and show the Brain Power Wellness team how much we appreciate them! They have worked with our students and shown them so many new ways to be confident, focused, happy, learning new coping strategies and just learning to LOVE YOU! Bring the whole family together or take this time for you but let's try and get at least 10 families to represent AmPark!
We hope you join us for our last two sessions! Info below.
