IPUL's News Update / Social Media Recap: August 2, 2019
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not all everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
We Want Your News!
 If you have news, information or upcoming events in your hometown that are relevant to families who have children with disabilities or special health care needs and would like us to share that information, please email the details to parents@ipulidaho.org for review.

Our program coordinator will then share this via IPUL's social media networks.
Report From the Road
IPUL Staff Started the week in North Idaho at the Caregiving in Idaho Lifespan Respite Summit:

We had a fantastic day learning while also sharing about all of the concerns, issues, and strategies for respite for family caregivers across the life course in Idaho today. Thanks to the Idaho Caregiver Alliance and all of the wonderful sponsors who made this summit possible in beautiful Couer d'Alene today!

Our annual Free Rock Camp is coming up: August 5-9; 1:00-3:30pm! This camp is open to everyone, but we encourage New Americans and students who may not otherwise have the means to attend camp during the summer to sign up.  

This is open to all ability levels and we will provide all instruments.

Students will be broken up into bands, learn some tunes (and maybe write some too!) and hold a performance at the end of the week for family and friends.

This tends to be our favorite camp of the summer and we can’t wait to see what the students come up with.

To sign up or to nominate a student, please email us at boiserockschool@gmail.com  
Graham Slam Updates:
We posted a couple of updates about the impending Graham Slam event.
