One more label

As a new member has joined us, here you have the new eTwinning label from December 30th.

Aurelija Dirginciene

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve. The day after tomorrow is the first day of 2008. This is going to be a special year for us, teachers, and all our students. We're creating bonds between countries that we don't know much about. We're creating bonds between children. We're creating better adults and a better Europe. Through Dance and Music. Through tradition.
Now it's time to welcome our newest member: Aurelija Dirginciene from Lithuania.
All our work and efforts will be the joy of our children. Thank you all. Have a Wonderful 2008.
