CARE at Celebrate Norfolk Day!

Celebrate Norfolk Day was a great success. Beautiful weather and a well organized event resulted in a great turnout! Kudos and hats off to the planning committee for an amazing job. We're glad to have had an opportunity to participate.

Our Norfolk CARE carabiners (and bubble gum) were a big hit and helped us kick off efforts to bring a Parent Leadership workshop by the Institute for Responsive Education to Norfolk. Activity at the CARE table was steady throughout the day and we appreciate everyone stopping by to add names to the email list.

Survey results will be sent out to all who signed up. If you haven't received yours, please email us at NorfolkCARE@hotmail.com or box29@norfolknet.com.
