What Kids Tell us About Their Time at Starry Hill (2/14/16)

Although we don't charge kids to come to Starry Hill for field trips, we often get 'payment' in the form of Thank You notes. We love to receive these. Here's a sample of some we've received recently....

I would like to thank you so much for giving me and my class the opportunity to see space in a whole different perspective. I know for a fact that the whole class loved the adventure. I thought this was the best field trip I've ever had. I hope I can come back sometime soon. THANK YOU! Grady....
