Dear PS20 Families,
Please log on to this UFT conference for the parents and educators.
We usually have this conference happening in one of the NYC schools, but the pandemic is making "virtual "the middle name of our lives. So the conference is VIRTUAL and you may take it with you wherever you chose to be on this sumptuous Fall morning.
So log on; there are workshops for all and parents can speak their VOICE, hear other 's opinions, and learn a lot in this age of COVID19.
