Gearing Up


I am looking forward to tomorrow night's #whatisschool Twitter conversation on "Engaging Families and Community in Student Learning". Laura Hill, Moderator, John MacLeod, Family Literacy Expert at Wonderopolis and NCFL, and I will discuss this topic with the global community across Twitter. 

Please join us on September 21, 2017, 7 pm EST at #whatisschool.


To gear up for the event, the team created publicity documents. 
Jon Reigelman, Creative Director of Wonderopolis, 
designed the following promotional flyer.


You can link to my Wonderopolis Wonder Ground post here that followed Laura Hill's blog post. Below is the question document created by Wonderopolis and provided by John MacLeod.


Stress and harmonic imbalance at home can decrease student's ability to enjoy school and perform to the best of their abilities. So what can we, as educators do? - Laura Hill
It is an important question to pose to parents and community members, as well. As stakeholders in children's educational lives, home-community-school connections are vital. Students are the future and we need to invest commitment and diligence to fostering positive learning grounds for them. 

Learning grows each day through a stance of noticing and wondering in positive environments.
