Dear Raising A Reader Network,  

So much has changed since last week’s message.  We’ve held a presidential election, and sadly, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases.  As communities and school districts respond to rising numbers, we anticipate adjustments (once again) to classroom structure and protocol.  During the Town Hall last Friday we spent some time in breakout groups discussing what the next few months will look like for Affiliates, and how we can respond and support each other.  Check out the slides and videos here.  

Do you need some ideas to engage families during the holiday break?  The National Center for Families Learning has created this wonderful calendar containing 30 Days of Families Learning Together to make the holidays fun and creative.  Check it out and share it with your families.   

Don’t forget to register for our upcoming Town Halls. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from the Affiliate Network and hear ideas that will inspire your efforts to engage families. Register here for the Town Hall meetings through December. 

Special Year –End offer:   If you refer a colleague, friend or associate that purchases items in our Family Shared Reading collection, you’ll receive a set of 10 books from Barefoot Books!  

Kindest regards,

The Raising A Reader team
