Hello, this is Penny Rogers at Washington Center with a short weekly summary this time. We had a very informative “Lunch and Learn” Thursday, and our guests from CDS shared a great deal of helpful information about the services available for individuals with disabilities. Thank you to our PTA for supporting these “Lunch and Learns” and to Jennifer Tillman for arranging them. Also, this week Rick Almeida was at school several days helping out with administrative tasks, and I hope you will stop in to meet him when you are in the building.
