NL Reads Virtual Literacy Town Hall

Learning Loss has been a hot topic among educators and parents throughout the pandemic but what does it mean for you and your family? At this virtual event, we will debunk the myths around what it means to be on track and talk about ways that you as a caregiver can support your child through the summer and set them up for success in the next school year.

Join us on June 9 from 6pm – 7:30pm and hear from experts, educators, and caregivers! Find ways to help your family get through the summer and gear up for the upcoming school year!
