Welcome to the July 2016

The NCSM eNews is published monthly. Our goal is to provide the NCSM community with current happenings for both the NCSM organization and mathematics education. Please let us know if you have suggestions for future editions. We hope that you are enjoying your summer and are using this time to reflect on the past academic year, as well as plans for fall.

Babette M. Benken, eNews Editor 
Message from the NCSM President, John Staley 

Continuing the conversation: "How might we" make mathematics more meaningful, relevant, and accessible for ALL students? As you think of your role and the work you do to support the teaching and learning of mathematics, what is your plan to involve families and community partners? As the summer continues, now is the time to establish specific goals and a clear plan to engage parents and community members as active resources to support for learning mathematics. First, consider the resources you will provide-in multiple languages -that help people understand the mathematics that children are learning. Second, consider the opportunities available to partner with faith-based and community organizations that play a role in supporting families and students. How might NCSM better support you in this work? Take a moment and share your thoughts: post http://tinyurl.com/NCSM-MRA, Twitter- #NCSM-MRA. 
Have a great summer.
