Want to meet other LABCS families?

As acceptance letters to the school have gone out, we know that parents are eager to connect with each other and start forming the school's community. To facilitate this, a few parents have volunteered to host get-togethers for families with children attending or considering attending Lakes and Bridges. These meetings are informal ways to meet each other and maybe start discussing carpools and other logistics. These meetings are not hosted by the school, but are parent-led events. Attendance is optional, and we will not share who went (in order to protect the privacy of students, we will never give out names of who is attending the school). We hope parents can find time to attend a meeting.
