Coffee & Conversation

Please join Superintendent Dr. Bolgen Vargas for a series of informal gatherings to talk about education in our city.

A morning and afternoon session is hosted each month at a different school. All faculty and staff, parents, and other members of the community are welcome at every location, no matter where in Manchester you live, which school you work in, or where your children go to school.

Choose the date, time, and school that is most convenient for you, or feel free to attend more than one session.
