member of the month:
January 2019 Member of the Month is Dylan S. from Milwaukee! Dylan is a funny 7 (almost 8) year old who attends Milwaukee French Immersion school. Yes, Dylan knows a lot of French and his favorite subjects are math, reading and writing. When asked how his teacher would describe him, Dylan said, “she’d say I’m independent.” When Dylan isn’t at school he likes to watch TV and play with his Lego sets. Some day he’d like to learn how to swim better so he can stay above water. Great attitude, great goals and it was fun meeting and interviewing Dylan at clinic.
