I have the privilege of watching all the photos from this year’s programs and all the previous years scroll on my work computer whenever I turn it on! It is a window into all that has transpired at Nantucket S.T.A.R. for the last several years. Everyone has grown in so many ways, the physical differences are easy to spot but I also know the tremendous personal growth that has taken place, not only for our students and families but for our staff as well! We have witnessed first hand over 20 students learn to swim, 15 students take on the new challenge of cooking and cross fit, our Sensory Art classes grew so much this year that the AAN had to move us to a bigger room, several new skaters and many veterans in this program of over 8 years, and our water sports programs continue to be a source of immense joy and fun for staff and students! Thank you to all of our community partners , the AAN, The Nantucket Community School and Pool, The Nantucket Ice Rink, Miacomet Golf Club, Nantucket Cycling and Fitness Studio, Nantucket Culinary Center, and Nantucket Community Sailing! Thank you most of all to our staff and volunteers who daily inspire me and to our families and their children who bless our socks off each and every week! Happy Holidays!
