Dear Parents and Caregivers,


πŸ’ Memorial Day is an American holiday honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. The red poppy is a symbol of both Remembrance Day and hope for a peaceful future. It is also the unofficial start of summer!


🌞 How can you prevent "summer slide"? In a special in-person Spanish event, Edwin Fernandez, LCSW, and Michelle Remond, RCSD, present Preparando a su estudiante para el verano (en español) (May 28).
