Greetings Parents, Guardians, Friends!
As many of you are aware, the Parent Support Group was initiated over 17 years ago to provide parents with information on various topics of interest and an opportunity to get together to share successes and problem solve. Over the years, the group had been led by several very dedicated parents whose children have since grown up, graduated and moved on. This year, two parents have volunteered to be Co-Facilitators of the group, Michelle McDonald and Katherine Maciol. We all thank Michelle and Katherine for taking this role! For the past 4 years we have partnered with the Parent Network of the Capital Region to continue to bring high quality workshops to our area. That seems to be working well and we will continue this during the 2018-19 school year (see below). We would also like to invite you to let us know of any topics you would be interested in learning about this year.
Thank you for your support and partnership with us to continue to provide your children with high quality education supports. We look forward to working together again this year!
Bill Coyle and Helen Squillace
