Head Start Policy Council right now. Skyping between Santa Maria and Goleta. Representatives from the centers meeting today discussing teachers communicating with parents the children's activities each day.
Fran FormanAttendng Policy Council is always inspiring and eye opening, I get reminded and in awe of the work of the staff at the 26 centers in partnership with parents. Each center reports on the activities- there are reading under the stars nights, center spruce ups, field trips, pot lucks, curriculum planning, a Dad from Goleta let us know today that he made all of the letters of the alphabet in wood, painted them and are life size for the children.....there is real community & support networks created. Sometimes I think, oh shucks, a Saturday meeting but each and everytime I just love that meeting and interaction. The officers are also over the top.5 days ago · 1
