Our first meeting was held on September 2nd. Much of the meeting was spent in introduction to the new year/new theme. Everyone was introduced to their new discussion groups and leaders. The new theme was introduced. We interviewed each other in our discussion groups using the questions for the "getting to know you" section of the newsletter. We also did a name-tag craft.
The September 16th meeting featured Lisa Sanderson speaking on development of children. She presented information on how to identify characteristics of your child's development that should be addressed. She works on behalf of an organization that serves as an advocate between families and schools to get the services children may need to be successful, no matter the type or severity of the issue.
