Parent Cafe

     Lamoille Union Middle School and Healthy Lamoille Valley are pleased to invite all parents/caregivers to our monthly Parent Cafe Series.  These monthly gatherings are designed to highlight a community resource or parenting skill and then encourage conversation with other parents/caregivers from around the region.  Breakout groups will be facilitated by local school and mental counselors assigned by children’s ages in elementary, middle, and high school parent discussion rooms. Diane Lepikko, our school counselor will be helping to facilitate one of these breakout rooms.

Join us on the first Thursday of each month from 4:30-5:30!
