November 15 - November 30

Hello Families,

We hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful cooler weather! Next week, schools are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. We wish for all to have a safe, restful and enjoyable time with families and friends. Although 2020 has been a very challenging year for many, it's still so important to acknowledge the many blessings we still have in our lives. This bi-monthly newsletter is intended to help keep everyone informed and up to date on topics and webinars related to special education, as well as the PRC's monthly zoom meetings. December 10th, we are hosting three residential/day programs to share their information for post secondary support. We hope you'll join in! We'll see everyone back on Monday, November 30th.
