AFTERSCHOOL ROUNDTABLES HELP THE COMMUNITY ADAPT
Dallas Afterschool has been hosting bi-monthly roundtables to connect with the afterschool community and share best practices. Last week we discussed  re-opening plans and whether partners were planning to hold summer programming . Talking points included how programming might be deployed as well as PPE and recommended procedures to put in place.

To learn more or to sign up for a future roundtable session email Marjorie Murat mmurat@dallasafterschool.org .

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO
Christina K. Hanger
Right now, every minute of every day is out-of-school time and the need for our services is profound. We have been working with partners and families to mobilize resources for food distribution and provide much-needed assistance with distance learning. We have also been working to match laid-off afterschool educators with families in need of virtual tutoring services as well as childcare for essential workers.

We will continue to lead the afterschool community and find new and innovative ways to support students in Dallas. If you would like to support these efforts, I invite you to visit our North Texas Giving Tuesday page today and make a donation.

Thank you for your support - and stay well!
TODAY IS THE DAY!
Today is YOUR day to transform the lives of students in Dallas!
WE LOVE AFTERSCHOOL PROFESSIONALS!
April 20th-24th was Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week. We are extremely grateful for all the work that afterschool educators continue to do for students and families throughout Dallas!
