Please join the online parent get-togethers this fall! We call this COFFEE BREAK.

The event meets online once a month using ZOOM. It is very informal and relaxed – just an easy conversation. Families often have questions they might ask. Below is a sample agenda, possible dates August – December, and speakers – topics.

These get-togethers take place online using ZOOM. You use your home device with a mic and camera.
