Dear Families,

It's hard to believe we have completed 9 weeks of learning already! Whether you have chosen in-person or remote learning, we want to congratulate you on supporting your child to show up and get the job done! We recognize now more than ever that the role you play in ensuring your child's success in school is critical. Please take time to watch the Self Care Video at the end of our newsletter. We know how busy you are, but we encourage you as parents and caregivers to make the time to take care of yourselves. It's important and you deserve it!

Thank you so much for supporting your child's learning and for taking the time to read the Parent and Family Engagement newsletter.

In this edition, you have the opportunity to register for a virtual Social & Emotional Learning Discussion series and we have also provided information about a special program titled Early Literacy Strategies for Parents and Caregivers.

We hope you enjoy the resources we are providing you and, as always, we welcome your feedback!

SEL Classes are starting in just two weeks!!!

Social and Emotional Learning for parents is HERE! This 7-week Discussion Series will support what our students are learning and when our families work together with the school, the results are much greater than working in isolation. Our hope is that you will join us for our Social & Emotional Discussion Series for Parents & Caregivers that will help you and your child build strong connections that reinforce social-emotional skill development.

Classes will begin on October 28th and will meet virtually for approximately 45 minutes a week. Please click the link below to register for classes!

Parents have FREE access to early literacy resources from October 26th - December 9th!!

Early Literacy Strategies for Parents and Caregivers is a course for parents, caregivers, and early childcare providers looking to explore and engage with high-yield literacy strategies to support the literacy development of children ages 3-8. Designed for the adult learner, the course uses self-reflection questions and scenario-based learning to help learners visualize and plan how they can apply strategies in a way that honors the adult and the child’s experiences.

In addition, learners can access a list of resources within the Cell-Ed app anytime for tips, activity ideas, and free ebooks.

Available in English and Spanish.
