November is #FamilyEngagementMonth!
.
Governor Roy Cooper’s proclamation reminds us that families are children’s first, longest lasting, and most important teachers, advocates, and nurturers. Strong family engagement is central to promoting children’s healthy development and wellness. It is important for schools, early learning settings, and communities to welcome families, plan for family engagement, and to assist families in engaging their child’s learning.

I personally want to express my appreciation for our Smart Start of New Hanover County for Teacher Appreciation Night. It was so enjoyable to be able to try new skincare products, get a massage, make bath bombs and lip balm and to also enjoy some awesome snacks. It feels so great to be appreciated!!!! 🌻🌻
