Workshops: Anchored4Life


We are fortunate to have a number of useful resources in the Pikes Peak region for our military families and their children. 

Two of those are Anchored4Life and MCEC (Military Child Education Coalition).  Their workshops and webinars share practical ideas, proven techniques and solid resources to support military-connected families.

For more information, call Peterson’s School Liaison office, 719-556-7832 or 719-556-6141.
