Ahoy, mateys! Pirates be in CARL

On Friday afternoon, Sept. 16th, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. we will be celebrating "Talk Like a Pirate Day" with the children.  We would like as many children to come with parents as possible.
Ye'll be learnin' the proper way to hail yer cap'n and get the landlubbin' scallywags on board a-sailin' smartly, among other phrases ye'll be needin' on the high seas and reading pirate stories and children can come dressed as a pirate. However, we will not have a pirate costume judging.  We will have cookies and an assortment of door prizes.

To brush up on your Pirate check out these resources.
