A Special Thanks to Education Matters

SKILL would like to recognize and thank EducationMatters for providing us with a grant that enabled our class to have music therapy sessions with JB Music. Had it not been for their support we would not have been able to enjoy watching the positive impact music therapy has on our students and how beneficial it is in their growth and development. Thank you EducationMatters!
