I am excited to begin offering informal Zoom Chat Sessions every Monday from 8:30 to-9:30 a.m. I know that there are a lot of changes and uncertainties happening and I want to create an opportunity for families to hop on and ask questions, share concerns, or just chat!

You are welcome to join me anytime during the one hour block. I will begin holding these Zoom Chats on Monday, November 30th and will continue them as long as they are being utilized.
