Successful Schools in Action, an educational non-profit organization dedicated to the grassroots effort of improving neighborhood schools, has a number of community events coming up in the next couple of weeks.
On Tuesday, January 12 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at McClure Middle School SSIA and Schools First board member Lisa Macfarlane are hosting “SCHOOL LEVIES – Everything You Need to Know,” to discuss the February school levies.
Every Thursday beginning January 14 through February 11 from 7 to 9 p.m., SSIA will host a Writer’s Workshop for parents led by Blaine principal Heather Swanson and McClure principal Sarah Pritchett (see post below). The 5-week course is designed to put parents in the shoes of their students and experience what the writing process feels like.
