Please join us for AALPA’s monthly meetings. They are great opportunities to connect with fellow parents and the SI community. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m. at SI's Alfred S. Wilsey Library. In the spirit of community, you are encouraged to bring a light snack to share. All are welcome. Please check this page for the latest on AALPA meetings and events.
