A Message from Raising A Reader

Dear Raising A Reader Network,   


After taking a break from our regular Town Hall meetings last week, we are excited to invite you to join us this Friday, June 19 at 11am PST/2pm EST.  Our topic will be “Administrator to Implementer Buy-In".   

Have you ever wondered how other Affiliates create an RAR culture throughout their organization? We know from experience that when everyone’s on board, RAR’s impact improves. We’ll have veteran Coordinators share the secret to their success in creating a cohesive RAR implementation that includes administrators, implementers, parents and kids.  We hope you can join us.  Register here 


Kindest regards, 

 The Raising A Reader team
