The Los Lunas Schools Special Education Department and the IDEA Parent Advisory Panel will be hosting an informational fair for the Los Lunas community and surrounding areas.
The purpose of this event is to communicate with and educate parents, educators, administrators, and other interested community members regarding special education and the many community services available for disabled students.
Several associations, including the March of Dimes, Cancer Support Groups, The United Way, The Autism Society and ARCA will be represented. The Los Lunas Special Education programs, along with many parent groups, will provide information on services and programs available for children with special needs.
The fair will be held on Thursday, July 25, at the Los Lunas Schools central office, located at 119 Luna Avenue in Los Lunas. The fair will begin at 2 p.m. and will continue until 7 p.m. Prizes will be given and refreshments are free.
“We are looking for interested groups, individuals or associations willing to set up a booth to provide information that will nurture a greater understanding of special-needs children and the services necessary to meet their needs,” said Wilma Smith, coordinator of special education.
“This will be an opportunity for you to use your expertise and be actively involved in your community. And it’s a great opportunity to speak to professionals in many different areas, to ask questions and to have an enjoyable afternoon.”
To set up a booth, call Smith or Jody Hunter at 866-8333 or 865-9636. The deadline for reservations is July 19.
