September 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 It’s a new school year and SO much has changed! Are you worried about how your children will transition back to school, in a new classroom, an unfamiliar teacher, different classmates, a new bus driver, etc.? Perhaps your child is starting at a completely new school for the first time. 

Well, we’ve got you covered! Join us for Tips and Tricks for Returning to School. During our Zoom presentation, we will provide practical and easy strategies to implement in September to make the journey back to school an easier one. One lucky attendee will also win our fabulous door prize! Hope to see you on September 14!
