To all the families and friends who came to the iLEAD AV Fall Festival, thank you! The learners had fun creating and decorating all the booths, signs, and activities for the event. With your participation, we were able to raise money for the learners’ upcoming field studies!

Valet Pickup: Important Updates
Many of you may have noticed we changed valet pickup at the gate. Parents, we will now have you present your valet card at the valet gate to one of our Care Team sitting there.
