District 25 PTA Council approved a new committee called “A.C.E. it 25” (All Children Excel). The committee will focus on supporting children with special needs and their families. Goals of the committee are to promote disability awareness, facilitate inclusion at PTA functions and create a parent support network. Each school will have a liaison who would attend PTA meetings and act as a point of contact should questions arise. The liaison would also communicate parent requests or concerns to the school PTA. If you would be interested in being the Ivy Hill liaison for this committee, please contact: Luanne@ Lbeisenhardt@yahoo.com.
