Hello parents and caregivers,

This is the next to last Tech Talk that Cindy and I will be writing!  Where has the time gone!  We know people are ready for the school year to be over, but we encourage everyone to come to our last PA meeting on Thursday, June 17th, come and say goodbye to us and all the senior parents graduating with their kids!  An email will go out a few days before the meeting with the zoom info.
