Business Meetings

All parents are encouraged to attend our monthly business meetings. During the first hour we meet with administrators to discuss topics of common interest. For the last half hour, parents remain for a guided conversation on the "topic of the month," which will help us determine agenda items for future meetings.

Upcoming Meetings:

Tuesday, April 4, 9:30–11:00 am
Emery Grover 

Wednesday, May 3, 7:00–8:30 pm
Broadmeadow Media Center

In addition to updates from the directors, we were joined by new Director of Transportation Shane Marchand. We have formed a Back-to-School Task Force which will focus on what parents would like to have in place before our kids head back after summer, including a checklist to help prepare for transition meetings, plans for transportation supports, and communication with teachers and specialists.
