Can't Make It? Virtual Welcome Receptions

If the reception in your area has passed or you cannot attend, you can still participate virtually via our Facebook Live Event, which can be accessed on our Facebook page on Tuesday, August 6 at 2 p.m. PDT, or any time after.

We would be thrilled to “E-meet” you during our Facebook Live session. To join, all you have to do is “like” and “follow” our Facebook page.

We’ll answer your questions in real time and help you understand what to expect during your experience as a Panther Parent.

If you have something to ask, you can leave a post in the comment section of the Virtual Welcome Facebook event, and we’ll answer them during the reception!
