Dear Raising A Reader Network,  

Next week is Thanksgiving, which signals the home stretch of 2020. Whew! As we reflect on a year full of transitions, pivots, and reinvention, RAR would like to hear from you. Instead of our usual Affiliate Check-In survey, we will be engaging our Affiliates in phone conversations. We’d like to hear how you’ve navigated the pandemic, what you’ve learned about serving your families, and how RAR National can offer the supports you need to move forward in 2021. Your valuable input will help us tailor our programs to better meet the needs of our Affiliates. As a token of our appreciation for you taking the time to speak with us, we will be offering a $100 credit off a future purchase. Be on the lookout for an email invitation from your Portfolio Manager to schedule a time to connect. 

Perhaps you've heard about our Family Shared Reading Program and wanted to learn more about the details. Well, now is your chance. Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, 11/18, from 10:00 – 10:30 PST to learn how the program keeps families engaged in literacy activities and connected to classroom instruction during these days of distance learning. Register here

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
