Dear Raising A Reader Network,   

It’s August, which means it’s time to get ready to go back to school! With current restrictions on in-person gatherings and conferences, connecting with families may look completely different this year. We all know that engaging families is critical to school success, but how do we reach them in meaningful ways through virtual platforms? In our Town Hall meeting last week, and continuing this week, we are highlighting the experiences of Affiliates who are successfully engaging families through virtual platforms.   

We heard from RAR Massachusetts on their fee-for-service model for Parent Workshops, and we reviewed resources with great tips for remote learning to use and share. If you missed it, you can still watch the recorded version here:  July 31 Town Hall Video

Please join us as we continue the discussion this Friday, August 7. Register here for RAR Town Hall Meetings.

REMINDER – If you haven’t already completed the Going Back Plan survey, please take a moment to share your current plans for connecting with families and how we can support your efforts.

Kindest regards,

The Raising A Reader team
