Creative experiences are a wonderful way to draw families into schools and build the sense of partnership between educators and parents. In this webinar, participants explored how creative experiences can deepen opportunities for family engagement. Parents and educators share the same goals and aspirations for children. This common ground helps to build their relationship as co-educators who work together to support children’s learning.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Gain deeper understanding of “why to and how to” forge strong partnerships with families is so important.

2. Use art sketches or sculptures to help visualize a child’s future and focus on success.

3. Think outside the box when exploring ways to engage families in schools.
