• Happy 2020! I hope everyone enjoyed the Winter Break and had a chance to make lasting memories with family to end the decade.

    We have so many things to look forward to as we kick off the New Year. As part of Sharing the Commitment, our 2nd ESE Expo this school year is taking place on January 22nd at Gulf Coast High School. This is a free event providing parents a chance to connect with professionals and discover the many local resources available for preschool through high school transition-aged students with disabilities. Click here for a list of local providers and organizations that will be in attendance.

    We will end the month of January with our Virtual Symposium on Preparing Your Child to be Life Ready! Set for January 29th at 6:00pm, this event will feature a panel of experts sharing empowerment strategies, life-ready skills, and work-readiness skills, among several other topics. The panel will be live at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Administrative Center, but satellite video-conference locations will be available. Click here to learn more.

    A reminder that our annual community STEAM event has taken on a new name! The 2019-2020 STEAM Expo will be held on Saturday, February 1st, at Golden Gate High School. We are excited to welcome back Kate the Chemist, who will share another out-of-this-world demonstration! Take a walk through the STEAM Village and participate in many interactive, hands-on STEAM activities. Plus, visit our new artist workshop area and create art in a group activity.

    Together, let's make 2020 the best year yet!
