Dear Raising A Reader Network,

At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, we often signed off our communication with “We’re in this together.”  When reflecting on what we’ve experienced in the last nine months, this sentiment could not be more true. RAR National has depended upon our Affiliates to join us in a mission to keep families engaged and connected. We took the information you shared and prioritized our efforts to create new tools and resources to support your families in ways that were meaningful and manageable. It was a team effort that we achieved together. While we hope that 2021 restores some stability and normalcy, we remain forever committed and grateful to the partnership we share with our network.  

During our last Town Hall of 2020 we took some time to reflect on our successes and prepare for the year ahead. See the video and slides for details. We look forward to continuing our Town Halls in 2021.   

Thanks to all who have participated in the year-end check in calls. You will be receiving an email with your $100 credit towards future purchases before March 31, 2021. We will also be sending out an Annual Check-in Survey, which is different, and encourage all Affiliates to complete this in addition to the check-in call. Look for more information in our monthly Bookmark tomorrow and a year-end message from our CEO, Michelle Torgerson. 

Kindest regards,

The Raising A Reader team 

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!
