MEET THE FACILITATOR (teacher) EVENING/FAMILY ONBOARDING - Sept. 15

We will host a virtual event to allow families to connect with LEAD facilitators and mentors and learn about courses and expectations.



Mark your calendars for Tuesday, September 15 at 6:30pm.


Family Onboarding: LEAD can look a little different from other buildings, and even for returning families, there have been changes to how we operate and updates to Summit. We will be sharing resources in the coming weeks to help "onboard" and orient our families to partner with us in supporting your students.


A link to our event will be shared on Tuesday via email and will be available on our website.
