Blackwell PTSA Local Special Needs Chair, May Hegazi.
Dear Blackwell Parent, 
I, May Hegazi, am your Local Special Needs Chair at Blackwell Elementary School. As a Local SN Chair my role is to partner with the LWPTSA Council Special Needs Group (SNG), the PTSA, and Blackwell staff, to communicate information and foster community within those families with students on IEPs, 504s, and IHPs, as well as to share information to help bridge gaps in the greater Blackwell community. 
To encourage information sharing, we invite you to:
1.  Join the LWPTSA Council SNG. Networking and informative meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month during the school year (except for December and June) and are free of charge to attend. 
2.  The SNG maintains a free lending library, and resource information is available via an email distribution list.  You can subscribe to the mailing list by emailing special.needs@lwptsa.net 
You do not need to be a PTSA member to subscribe to the mailing list or attend the meetings, although becoming a member supports our school and the programs it offers. Please go to the PTSA website for more information:  http://blackwellptsa.org/Home

An updated Monthly SNG Meeting schedule and other information can be located at http://www.lwptsa.net/special-needs/ 

I look forward to helping parents advocate for their kids this year, and look forward to your ideas and suggestions of how I can best meet the needs of all of the kids in our learning community. I am excited about the opportunities this year holds for our students.
