Roots of Empathy:
Welcome to Baby Quentin and his mom,

or so, Baby Quentin and his mom will visit the homeroom. The class will observe
and interact with Baby Quentin as he grows and changes throughout the year, and
will engage in lessons before each visit to prepare for and reinforce the
teachings of the visit. The program will be instructed by Ms. Donald and Ms.
Marcyniuk. For more information on the Roots of Empathy program, please
