Youth and Family Programs

Our teacher consultants facilitate family literacy/writing nights during the academic school year. These community events create an opportunity for students and their families to author and publish their work. What better way to illustrate the importance of collaboration when composing, and supporting parents’ understanding of California ELA Standards? Contact our office if you would like more information about student after school writing clubs or family writing nights.
