Name: "What Our Kids Need from Us Right Now" Free Community Webinar
Date: January 12, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM MST
Registration: Sorry, public registration for this event has been closed.
Event Description:
The pandemic has deeply impacted our country in so many ways, but none more concerning than the long-term impact of three semesters of disrupted learning for our children.

Parents and teachers are stressed, and children have missed out on valuable in-person educational experiences critical for their social and intellectual development. Low-income and minority children, and those with disabilities or learning English, have particularly struggled in the absence of in-class instruction.

Join us for this free virtual panel discussion about "What Our Kids Need From Us Right Now."  We will welcome our special guest, Gerardo Muñoz, Colorado's 2020 Teacher of the Year, to the panelists for this discussion, along with local educators, Elaine Huot and Holly Hansburg.

What can we be doing as parents and as a community to help our kids bounce back from the challenges COVID-19 has put on their learning?  As we enter 2021 and begin to experience the hope of vaccine distribution, what steps can we be taking at all levels to prioritize a return to quality learning experiences for all children?
