Update:  Our first monthly meeting was a tremendous success.  Thank everyone for your
support.  There were just over ten attendees, some of which  included some of our very own caring and
committed SPED Staff from both Barrow and Jackson County.  Thank you ladies  for your support and
sharing your years of expertise and  experience. These are the beautiful bridges we are eager to build
for strengthening  our families, schools, and communities.  We are surely on the right path for
equipping, empowering, encouraging, and educating our young people.   And as for our loving and
devoted parents, lets remember that providing support and encouragement for one another is just as
important as properly and effectively advocating for our loved ones.  Communication, commitment,
consistency, and community are all vital keys to sustained success.
