Dear Parents, School Leaders and Educators,
Greetings and welcome to the 19th season of the Common Ground Speaker Series! While we could not have anticipated the need for a virtual 2020-2021 season, we are ready to launch a robust series of live Zoom events. We have a fantastic slate of speakers who are eager to share their expertise and wisdom with us and we welcome hearing your thoughts and ideas as we move forward.
We have worked hard to provide content that is relevant to our Common Ground community in these unprecedented times. Whether your children have just started elementary school or are looking toward college, our speakers will be on hand to guide you on your parenting journey. We hope these virtual conversations can help bring us together as we navigate the evolving circumstances and keep us focused on what is most important – the care and keeping of our families.
As part of our community engagement efforts, we will continue to partner with the Children’s Health Council and Common Sense Media as well as other esteemed organizations. Additionally, our hugely popular Pop Up Events will spotlight “hot topics” that we hope can provide additional support for you and your families. And you’ll want to grab the popcorn, relax and tune into our new virtual Parent Ed “Night at the Movies” from the comfort of your homes.
We are filled with deep gratitude for this fantastic community of parents and educators. Stay safe, enjoy your families and stay tuned for a great year!
Clara, Leslie & Marcie
