What’s New Wednesday

COMING SOON! Side by Side Spring Parent Forum on
Wednesday, May 3 from 6:30PM- 7:30
The Side by Side Board of Directors and administration will be
hosting a parent forum on Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30pm in the
gymnasium. This will be an opportunity for parents to provide
feedback directly to our school administration and board
members about the state of Side by Side.
During the past few years, COVID interrupted, restricted and
changed many of the ways we taught, collaborated and built
our school community. Now is the time to talk about how we
can re-engage, re-connect and re-ignite all of the things that
have made Side by Side such a special place! We look forward
to engaging in productive conversations with parents as we
come together and begin to imagine the Side by Side of the
future. We hope to see you there!
