Our winter Parent Night topic is SCREENTIME. Parents will share strategies regarding appropriate limits, and we will look at the rapidly growing body of research that supports these limits. Check our website for a list of upcoming sessions from Aspen to Parachute.
BLUE BAG DAYS:
Blue Bag Days connect Raising A Reader families with their local libraries. A special library event is scheduled for each classroom. Children hear a story, learn about the library, receive a special BLUE Raising A Reader bag to keep, receive their first LIBRARYCARD and check out their first books! Parents are encouraged to attend.
FAMILY PEER GROUP SESSIONS:
These are weekly small-group sessions with parents and children (ages 2 to 5). Children engage in a learning activity and parents discuss progress on building their child's literacy and language skills at home. Weekly sessions are noted below. The majority of our sessions are in Spanish, but we are happy to create a new group if there is need. Contact Lorena Silva at 970-456-5623 (Spanish) and Samantha Jacobs at 314-807-2509 (English) for more information.
