All participating educators are asked to attend a virtual Professional Development/Open House prior to accessing the Virtual Student Matinee. Especially now, as we emerge from a time of silence, we think that it is important to provide a space to connect with our educator community in order to present our restructured Student Matinee program and materials in a manner that will be the most beneficial for everyone. Please plan to attend the PD session for the matinee that you choose. If you register for both matinees, please plan to attend both PD sessions.
