 Join us for one hour of your morning … and fill it with games, door prizes, and interesting conversation. Join us for a PARENT’S Roundtable Discussion about the different techniques you use at home to assist our children. Maybe you have some ideas to share, or maybe you want to gain new ideas. Regardless of the reason, this promises to be an excellent event.
