On September 25, CELA A enjoyed its first Parent Advisory Committee meeting. Despite the rain, parents came to explore preschool curriculum items, to ask questions, and to meet other parents in our program. If you missed this event, no worries. We will have the same items available on Wednesday at School 17's cafeteria at 9:15 am and on Thursday at CELA B at 2 pm in the media center. All parents and guardians in the preschool program are invited to attend.
