Parents- check out these opportunities:

Family engagement series available on building family literacy connections 

At 7 p.m. on October 27, 2020, families will have the opportunity to join a live "Building Family Literacy Connections" Zoom session to learn strategies to develop an understanding of promoting literacy at home, fostering critical thinking skills, discovering the virtual impact of reading, and establishing a family reading area. This event is the start of a series of live Zoom sessions that will provide opportunities for families to learn, engage, and contribute together. The sessions will generate awareness of our Division’s programs and services. Find details on the English Learner Programs and Services Parent Outreach page

If you have questions, contact Regla Pérez Pino, PEP and EL counseling coordinator, at perezpr@pwcs.edu.

Young learner lessons available on our own PWCS programming

Our own teachers are sharing their young learner lessons on PWCS TV. View programs aimed at young children three times each school day: 6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m. Please share this information with colleagues and all PWCS families, as even high school students will have younger siblings, cousins, or friends who may benefit. Content is different each day, and schedules are posted weekly. 

For questions about this project, contact Dr. Amie Weinberg in the Office of Professional Learning at weinbeax@pwcs.edu.
