Introducing Village Connections

A FHSD Special Education Community

Families of students with special needs know that information and support come from many sources. Many of us depend on those who have a child with similar needs for support and many families will seek information from others who are further along on the path we are traveling. 

Last school year, the FHSD Parent Advisory Team identified the need for ongoing opportunities for these families to connect to share information and support.  This year, Village Connections, an information sharing and support community, will meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. in the Learning Commons at Nagel Middle School. There will be a general topic for each session with informational resources available.
