ABOUT THIS COMMUNITY CONVERSATION
Around this time each spring, school communities look forward to end-of-the-year traditions and celebrations. While much has been disrupted by the global pandemic, we can bring creativity and innovation to maintaining the spirit behind some of those meaningful year-end events. We can re-imagine graduations, culminations, promotions, awards ceremonies, teacher appreciation, retirements and farewells. Join us in conversation about ending the school year with as much connection and sense of belonging as possible. Facilitators will bring a few ideas to share, and you are encouraged to do the same.
All Community Conversations are open to CATDC Member Schools.
