PLEASE SAVE THE DATE and arrange the babysitters for our mandatory parent-only All School Meeting on Thursday, February 6th from 6:30-9:00pm. This is Little Wonders’ annual business meeting and will give parents an opportunity to network with other parents offering services, introduce staff and board members, cover our annual budget and fundraising efforts and have a chance to meet our outreach partners. We will also have a guest speaker talk with Q&A at the end. This is a required evening for all Little Wonders participants and one representative from each family is needed in attendance.
