You know the song from “High School Musical.” This motto fits perfectly as we partner with our students’ families and the community. During this seminar, teachers will learn meaningful and fun activities that encourage involvement of families and the community. Get your school year off on the right track as you learn specific ways to foster a strong community that emphasizes working together as a team. Topics include: Preschool Postcard Train, The Giving Tree and much more. Bring your markers, scissors and your creativity!
Book used during workshop: Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson — cute book about the changes a tree undergoes during the seasons
