Group Connections and Events
2020-21 Shawnee Mission Parents as Teachers and PTA Family Group Connections
Shawnee Mission Parent as Teachers has reached out to our families and ask if you are comfortable returning to some kind of in-person Group Connections. Thank you to those who responded. The overwhelming majority are extremely or somewhat comfortable attending in-person outdoor activities (i.e. walking groups, scavenger hunt @ a park, etc.) At this time, we are developing more group connections based on our survey results. These events are centered around parents' topic of interest. As we continue to plan activities, please be aware all in-person activities will require the attendance numbers to be limited, social distancing, and masks required.
