Parent Opportunity: Presentation on how to help your child with writing

Dear King Parents:

This year the School Improvement Team (SIT) will provide a series of presentations and workshops for parents on writing. The first is led by the Eastern Michigan Writing Project and is called “How to Help your Child with Writing.” This 90-minute presentation is for parents and caregivers who want to learn more about how to encourage their student writers at home. Dr. Cathy Fleischer and Kimberly Pavlock of EMU will explore family activities that promote writing as well as effective ways to respond to children about their writing. If you have not attended this event before, we strongly encourage you to attend. In the future, SIT will offer this year other presentations about the Ann Arbor writing curriculum, culminating with a writing workshop for the whole family.

For your convenience, the EMU presentations will be repeated three times. Please sign up for one of the following evenings:

• Monday, November 19 7 – 8:30 pm.
• Tuesday, November 27 7 – 8:30 pm
• Monday, December 3 7 – 8:30 pm

KingCare will offer childcare compliments of the MLK PTO.

Please return the form sent home previously by Friday, November 16 or call Secretary Mary Greene at 994-1940. Also, don't forget to indicate whether you will need childcare and the names and ages of your children (school aged children only).
