-To parents and guardians of students with special needs:

I am happy to announce the fall session of the Parent Support Group for parents and guardians of students with special needs at Falmouth Elementary School.

Come share the journey, the ups, downs, ideas, and laughs with others who truly ‘get’ it.

When: Tuesdays

November 24

December 1, 8

Starting promptly at 6:00 PM and ending at 7:30 PM. We understand the unpredictable nature of parenting so you are welcome whenever you can make it.

Where: Falmouth Elementary School's conference room. Come in the front doors and into the main office.

The goal is to support each other in this adventure, share resources, hopefully learn something new and useful and most importantly have time to breathe and laugh.

To ensure the health of all, please avoid wearing perfume or cologne.

For more information and to register please call or email, Laurie Sivonen,(207)-781-3988, ext 2130. LSivonen@FalmouthSchools.org
