After a bit of a hiatus, I am actively scheduling school visits for the remainder of the school year.
Fresh postcards will go out later this week.
For schools wanting to get a headstart, I am currently scheduling on Thursdays and Fridays but have some flexibility for those with a specific date in mind.
