Strong Start Update
Dearest Slocan Valley SS Families,
I truly regret to inform you that there will not be any in person Strong Start programming offered at WEG, Winlaw, and BK Elementary schools at this time. Although disappointing, I know we can stay connected and explore fun, learning and connection in a variety of ways. All comments, concerns and suggestions are welcome at .  I know that together we will make this an enriching and enjoyable experience!
Many thanks and much love
Pati McLaughlin - Slocan Valley Strong Start Facilitator
