Community Conversation with the Superintendent –Sep 8, 2022 | firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to extend an invitation to you, parents, to join me in this community forum.
This is an opportunity for me as the superintendent to give you an update on the school, address school-wide topics, and answer questions from you. You’ll also have an opportunity to enjoy some snacks and make connections with other GIS parents. One topic of interest will be the update on the Middle School project and campus development plans for the school.
Please RSVP by clicking this LINK.
If you have specific, school-wide questions you would like the leadership to address, you may share them ahead of time on the RSVP form (in the above link).
