"Critical Elements of Collaboration"
For families of children receiving special education
TUESDAY, January 31th from 12-1:30 pm
At the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC (conference room) - 1924 Capital Blvd, Raleigh 27604
The Special Education Inclusion Committee (SEIC) is hosting a Lunch & Learn for parents of children receiving special education. This event consists of a 1-hour workshop on the Critical Elements of Collaboration, as well as social networking with other parents of children with special needs. The workshop is free. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED (Bring your own lunch.)
As a parent, you are called on to be a leader in so many ways. As a parent of a child with special needs, your leadership abilities are put to the ultimate test.
This workshop is part of a nationally recognized, research-based curriculum called Parents as Collaborative Leaders. It is for parents who have children with a variety of special health care needs and/or developmental needs. The workshop on December 13th will cover one of the curriculum modules. (There are 10 modules in total.) This workshop is facilitated by Kerry McCarthy Adams, the current chair of SEIC and a parent of two precious boys, one of whom has special needs.
Module #3: Critical Elements of Collaboration
WAKE Up and Read is partnering with Ready4K, a text messaging program for families of preschoolers and kindergarteners, to support school readiness.
Ready4K was created by Stanford University researchers. The program sends three weekly cell phone texts to families to give them bite-sized tips and easy, specific actions related to developing early literacy skills. Each week families receive a “FACT” text, a “TIP” text; and a “GROWTH” text. The content of these texts includes a variety of literacy skills along with related parenting practices.
Families can self-enroll by text or enroll in Ready4K by going to the WAKE Up and Read website,www.wakeupandread.org and completing the Ready4K form.
Congratulations to the 2016-17 WCPTA Reflections Program Winners and a job well done to all the talented participants!
Thousands of students from across Wake County participated in the annual PTA art program that allowed them to express themselves creatively with new works of art inspired by the current theme “What Is Your Story?”. Students submitted work in six art categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Music Composition, Literature, Photography, 2D Visual Arts and 3D Visual Arts.
All students named on the attached list will be honored at the annual Wake County PTA Council Reflections Celebration in the Spring.. All 1st Place and Special Artist Winners will advance to the state judging in February.
Thank you to all the Local Unit Reflections Chairs and Representatives for organizing this event at your school. We appreciate your handwork and dedication to the PTA Reflections Program and to arts in education!
We would also like to thank all our volunteers and county judges for helping to make this program a success!
