Notes from dance

  • No students arrived that used wheelchairs, we want to make sure that the event is open to everyone
  • Pizza was ordered for wrong date- need to ensure accurate

  • Want more PPITT participants attend the event
  • Stick with water and pizza was perfect
  • ARC community room would be way too small
