April 22

Community Conversations "Celebration" being held on Monday April 25 from 6:00-7:00PM at CBMS.

Event Date: April 25, 2016
Time: 6:00-7:00PM
Location: Crossett Brook Middle School

Please join us for a celebration of the culmination of our Community Conversations which took place during the month of March. During the series of conversations over 100 parents, community members, staff, and students participated in a dialogue about the future of education in our communities. At this event we will share what we learned from this experience, and the actionable feedback that was received. This event is open to anyone regardless of whether or not they attended the Community Conversations. Directly following this event there will be an opportunity to continue the conversation to consider ways to become involved in helping this initiative have impact. Or, for those who are interested we will also be offering a chance to view the documentary film "Most Likely To Succeed".
