CAIS Parent Representatives
Michelle Kemper Verplaetse and Stephanie Reynaga serve as CAIS parent representatives for the group.
SPEAK pools resources among CAIS and other member schools. Its volunteer board members (typically 2 per school) plan, organize and hold exciting and timely parent education events. Usually this is a talk given by an expert in the field who has recently published a relevant book. Sometimes, it’s a panel discussion around a topic of interest or a screening of a relevant film.
All SPEAK events are free for CAIS parents.
