Let Your Voice Be Heard

The PTO would like to make you aware of an important opportunity to contribute your voice and special education perspective as PPS and the Board of Education begin long-term planning to deal with rising enrollment.

Please consider attending the Community Forum at PHS on Saturday, January 25th at 9 a.m. There will be a presentation by planning consultants Milone and MacBroom and then attendees will break into small groups to help M&M determine the town's goals and priorities. All discussions and decisions will impact our students and it is important that our perspectives are included in the planning process.

Can We Talk?

Our Coffee Talk series continues on Saturday, January 18th at The Blue Bears in the Princeton Shopping Center. Grab a drink & a nibble and join us for an informal conversation about topics of interest to families with students receiving special education services in Princeton. This will not be a formal presentation, but rather a parent-led group conversation. This is a great chance to meet other parents, ask questions and share knowledge. All are welcome!

No need to RSVP, just show up. Feel free to bring your child (with a book, iPad or homework).

Contact Ginny Bryant at bryant.us.uk@gmail.com with any questions.
