Thank you for posting this. It conflicts with the incoming 9th graders course selection workshop for parents (6:30-7:30, English Resource Center). But the workshop is also offered earlier in the day from 12-1:00 so I will attend that one and then be able to attend this one.

Parking will not be easy if two events are occuring this evening.
