In this Webinar

This school year has been uniquely challenging for everyone and most of us are happy to put it in our rearview mirror. As educators gear up to enjoy their much-needed and well-deserved summer break, Michael and Nita Creekmore will provide strategies for how you can end the year strong with current students’ families and begin forming relationships with families of incoming students over the summer. You will also learn how to plant seeds of connection with students and families that can bloom throughout the school year.
