“PLAY DOH!” Blackburn VPK student, Alara, shouted when asked her favorite part about Soar in 4. Then she dashed over to The Food Bank of Manatee’s activity, unable to wait a second longer. Their second time at the Art Center and seventh time at Soar in 4, Alara and her mom return for a myriad of reasons. “I love that every activity is interactive…she learns so much using the connecting blocks. Alara loves to hold things and to build. I also feel that reading connects Alara to school work; reading in this exciting environment and getting books from home means that we are more excited to read at home.”
