Exciting days ahead as Detroit Premier Academy, Excel Charter Academy, Grand River Academy, and Paragon Charter Academy will welcome elected officials to read to students for #marchisreadingmonth! Thank you to State Representative Winnie Brinks, State Representative Laura Cox, State Senator Morris Hood, and State Representative Julie Alexander for encouraging our students to read!
Unbelievable new from earlier this month: Detroit Achievement Academy and Detroit Prep have been selected as some of the first schools in #Detroit to receive support from the New York-based School Empowerment Network. What an opportunity!
Don't forget that one of our newest charter schools, Old Mission Peninsula School, has opened enrollment for the upcoming school year. However, the window is closing fast!
You can never have enough resources and tips when it comes to literacy. Thankfully, PBS Parents has created a page full of articles to help teachers and families. Topics cover how to handle children that aren't fond of reading, improving literacy at home, and helping young readers build skills from an early age.
Rajeshri Gandhi-Bhatia, who is one of our school consultants and the founder of School Smarts, LLC., was recently featured in the latest Innovators in Education blog for her perspective on supporting new teachers to improve retention. A good read to remind veteran teachers, school administrators and parents that it takes time and encouragement to develop educators that create "magic" in the classroom. https://buff.ly/2tOOFuK Michigan's Charter Schools @ConceptSchools National Heritage Academies University Prep Schools School Smarts, LLC
