REMINDER: Title I Workshops: Different Isn’t Bad: Talking to To Your Kids About Difference, May 23, 6:30pm in the library
Kids come in all varieties–they all have unique brains and bodies. In this workshop we’ll explore positive ways to talk about difference with your kids, whether their own or those of other students. We’ll examine what it means to have learning differences, how schools serve all kinds of kids, and how integrated classrooms benefit every kind of learner!
Join Giuliana Retizfeld, 5th grade ICT teacher and Jody Drezner Alperin, Teaching Artist from Off The Page for this workshop!  Pizza and childcare will be available during the meeting.
