Community Communications December 17th 2013
As Superintendent Sussman discussed a couple of weeks ago at REVITE, the district will be starting the “Let the Sun Shine In” collaborative meeting. Actually an extension of the REVITE concept, it will bring a conversation between community and school groups. We will discuss what we do, how we serve, and how we can serve together to provide opportunities for school and community members. Both school and community group members can discuss how they can help each other. Assuredly schools can’t help students alone. We cordially invite you on Tuesday December 17th at 9:30am in the Lou Thompson Room at the SRVRTC.
