Agora Community Roundtable
The Agora Community Roundtable series has been a great opportunity to hear from and chat with key Agora leadership.  New for 2018-19, we are including these Roundtable discussions as part of every Agora PTO meeting!  These conversations have helped to give our parents a voice and open further lines of communication within the Agora community.    If you’d like to view any of the recordings from last year, the links can be found at the bottom of this page.
