The 2019-20 school year is one that won't soon be forgotten. From graduation and proms to swing choir and track, many cherished events did not happen. This has been difficult for students, teachers, administrators, parents, and grandparents. 

However, it's important to look at the positives of what this event has taught us—how to be flexible, adaptable, resilient, and persistent, to name a few. We don't know what the future holds. But we know that we will join together, collaborate, and find solutions. The employees of Northwest AEA have accomplished extraordinary things with our partners just in the past few weeks. Thank you for working together and finding ways to help children grow!

We hope this summer brings more growth; lots of learning; some normalcy; and time for reflection and rejuvenation. We look forward to our work for children and families in 2020-21!
