Community Resources

Just Ask - March 2020 Mentoring Memo - These are challenging times for all of us. Both teachers and parents are (or soon will be) stumped as to how to make the best educational use of this unbelievable situation. Given that, I have taken some time to scour the Internet for a variety of resources that you can recommend to your protogees to use themselves or for them to let parents and caretakers know about them.
