We're hoping Danielle can get into Alma d'Arte Charter High School
when it's time. Entry is by lottery but I was told that if she is
known around there, she has an easier chance to get in.
They have FREE afterschool programs for high school students (don't
have to be students of the school). This is a great way to get your
foot in the door. Dani is taking Reader's Theater and Photoshop.
