Pictures from Sunday School General Assembly

The Sunday School had a General Assembly on Sunday, April 21st after the Holy Qurbana.  All the even classes made presentations consisting of skits, speeches and songs.  All our children were awesome!  They displayed their talents in many ways and entertained all in attendance.  The teachers were amazing helping the students prepare and present what they learned in their classes in a very short time.  It was great to see our children grow and be able to share their knowledge with others.  Congratulations to all the students, teachers and parents!
