Coffee & Conversation: Special Education
The Thoreau PTA invites you to join us for Coffee & Conversation about special education on Thursday, October 10 at 9:30 am in Eagle Hall. All are welcome to this casual gathering to learn more about special education resources at Thoreau and in the community. Thoreau’s special education department chair, Ms. Cary Seago, will be with us to answer questions. This event will also be an opportunity for families to connect who have an interest in special education or in supporting students with special needs.
