Alumni plan virtual, family-friendly activities for spring break
Sheridan’s talented alumni community will be hosting a few days of fun, family-friendly virtual activities to entertain children during spring break, which runs from April 12-16.
“We know it can be hard for parents to juggle work while kids are at home during spring break,” says Jennifer Deighton, Director of Advancement and Alumni Relations. “We’re fortunate to have such an engaged and talented alumni community who is willing to go above and beyond to showcase its skills and provide exceptional learning experiences for our community.”
Registration is free and open to the public.
