School and learning routines are deeply important to children and young adults, and the loss of these routines can be extremely disorienting. Together we can create vibrant, meaningful experiences at home to keep life as normal as possible and to keep our children learning and growing.
Author, educator, and literacy leader Pam Allyn will share tools for parents and caregivers to increase connectedness and foster resilience in these uncertain times. Using the seminal Seven Strengths as an anchoring tool, Pam will provide concrete strategies and support for families about successful and reassuring ways that they can sustain their children’s unexpected learning time at home. She will also offer practical, inspiring resources for learning and literacy to sustain joy and engagement, and skill-building in students.
Dear Parent Coordinators, Principals and PTA Presidents,
As we all navigate the many issues brought about by the COVID-19 crisis, Council Member Brad Lander has developed a live webinar series to help address many of the concerns present in our communities. After looking at the responses you so kindly provided to the survey we sent out last week, one area of concern that was notable is the ability of non-English speaking parents to access information about remote learning, technology, and basic needs such as food and COVID testing.
In response to this need, Council Member Lander and Council Member Carlos Menchaca will be hosting a Zoom webinar in Spanish for parents to ask questions and have their concerns addressed. The date is Friday, April 3 at 3PM. Speakers will include second grade teacher Paula Perrogon from PS 130, D15 Family Support Coordinator Brenda Diaz, and Aura Mejia, Tenant Advocate and Organizer at Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
Below is both a Spanish and English language email that you can forward to your parents. Please also forward the attached flyer (in Spanish) and feel free to post it on social media as well. Your help in getting this information out in a timely manner is very much appreciated!!!
