Community Schools Coordinators Network

Summer's around the corner! Thank you all for attending and participating in the National Forum! We had some exciting and insightful workshops and guest speakers. We hope they provided an energy boost to continue to do the work that we all diligently do for our children and families. As summer comes around, please remember to take some time for self-care, and remember to hydrate!

May is Mental Health Awareness and Trauma Awareness Month. Check out Mental Health America and American Trauma Society for resources and information!

- Arturo Magaña, Coordinators Network Co-Chair
