Envisioning Middle School Education — January 29, 7:00 p.m.
The Concord School Committee and Facilities Planning Committee invite you to join us in an evening of envisioning middle school education in Concord. As part of an “Educational Visioning” initiative that will help guide our efforts to plan for a new middle school building, we invite parents, guardians, and anyone involved in educating Concord’s students to share your hopes and dreams for the Concord Middle School educational experience and what it could look like in the future.

What hopes and dreams do you have for our students on IEPs or with special needs at the Concord Middle School? Attend the Parent Input Forum on Tuesday, January 29, 7-9pm in the Sanborn Auditorium and share them with the School Committee.
A new year brings with it the opportunity to look at the future and make a fresh start. For many of us, it also brings creating new IEPs and goals for our children. The January newsletter is all about the IEP and connecting you to some of the resources that may help you along the journey.
