Starfish Making Waves!!  — June Newsletter

June, the month that is on everyone’s mind, at least if you have or are a child about to graduate into a new stage of your life!  As we move into the summer, be sure to take time to address the future.  Edutopia gives a very thorough article called “Transition Resources for Parents, Teachers, and Administrators” (https://www.edutopia.org/blog/transition-resources-teachers-matt-davis) to help all ages transition.
