A Program from the Center School Committee on Racial Justice and Equity

Tuesday, May 9

6:00pm – 7:30pm

At The Center School, large Studio

Please join us for an evening for the adults in the Center School community (families, teachers, staff, etc.) to connect with one another over food and beverages while talking about deepening the community of belonging at The Center School.

We look forward to connecting with our community.

PTA and SLT Opportunities

We will be hosting our PTA and SLT elections in May. We currently have several positions that will be vacant next year, so we are looking for members of our community to run for office.

If you have questions about these opportunities or positions, please contact the PTA Presidents at centerschoolpta@gmail.com.

Community Education Council Elections 2023
