Getting ready for the next Family Involvement Retreat (May 25)
Thank you families for participating in our first Family Involvement Retreat last week. The turnout was fantastic, and it was exciting to hear so many ideas and solutions for family involvement at the school. Here is a link to the cool TED Talk video about WHY. Here is a link to the presentation that framed our work.
Next steps: On May 25 we will have a follow-up retreat from 12noon to 3pm in the LS Science Lab. To best serve the learning of our children, parents, teachers and students need to be united. The goal of this next retreat is to finalize a mission and vision for family involvement at EAB. We will also determine goals for next year and consider the programs, structures and action steps that will help to build a sustainable, inclusive and powerful home/school connection. All parents are welcome, even if you were not able to come to the first session!
To sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide enough lunch for everyone!
Teacher appreciation: Thank you for your support
As this week’s Bulletin is going out, many families are on site helping out with a special social event for all EAB’s teachers as part of teacher appreciation week. Thank you everyone for your kind and generous contributions to make this happen!
Teacher Grant round now closed
Several excellent proposals came in to request PTO funding for innovative education activities at the school. A committee of parents will look at the proposals this week. The teacher grant round is an important tool for the PTO to support special education activities that make an impact at school or around the world--thank you for your support!
