On Friday, January 6 from 6:30-8:30 we will have an Upper Level Kick-off meeting at 72 Main Street, Westford, MA. This will be for ALL candidates considering pursuing an Upper Level certification this Summer. This includes: HB, C3, B, HA and A. Karen Marcotte, Sue Amendola and I will all be there to talk about the process and to begin talking about expectations.
