What Great Things Have Happened at Your School?
We Want to Include You in Our Newsletter!
What has been the most successful event or lesson at your school this year? We are looking for articles on best practices, successful activities, collaborations, professional learning, and more from our members. We also like to include photographs and even book reviews. The spring and fall newsletters are mailed to our members, shared with other organizations and sponsors, and are posted on our website. Educators who write articles are eligible to receive PGP points. Principals: please consider reaching out to some of your teachers and encourage them to share!
