Friday Round-Up, October 4, 2013
Here are a few updates for the week from the Network Communities Support Center:
This week we received Tell Our Story submissions from Topeka, KS, Buffalo, NY, Torrington, CT, West Alabama, Austin, TX, and Camden, NJ, bringing our community participation up to 66 communities! Last week we received stories from Long Beach, CA, Las Vegas, NV, Madison, NY, Seattle, WA, Louisville, KY, and Gulfport, MS. Thank you to those of you who have already submitted, and please continue reading and commenting on the stories! If you haven’t submitted your story yet, please join your colleagues in doing so this month.
If you wish to join the October training cohort for the Campaign's Results Scorecard pilot, complete the "Expression of Interest” survey by Friday, October 4. Also, please plan to attend and register for the October introductory/launch webinar, scheduled for Tuesday, October 8, from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. Eastern. If you have already submitted an "Expression of Interest" to join the September cohort and subsequently decided to postpone joining until October, you do not need to complete another survey; instead, please email Bob Saffold (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm your intention to join the October training cohort. Here is a flyer with more information.
Registration is now open for the National Summer Learning Association's annual conference in Orlando this November 11-13. Early literacy and grade-level reading will be a major focus of this year’s event. Please let us know if you are planning to attend.
Please be sure to review the recent note from Ron Fairchild celebrating the success of the Summer Learning Day, Tell Our Story, and Attendance Awareness Month and previewing a calendar of upcoming events.
