The following is a separate event announcement from Solomon on the “Science of Reading” at the Avon Public Library at 2 p.m.:
When: Friday, August 12, 2pm
Where: Avon, CO Public Library
Matt Solomon is hosting Joyce Rankin from the State School Board to speak about the Science of Reading and its effect on elementary students in Colorado. This is an open meeting for parents and community members.
I would also like to ask if you could circulate the event or announce it so that we can offer ample notice to parents that would like to attend, learn, and be engaged with our State Education Leadership. Matt and Joyce are offering this free of charge in an effort to support our students, parents, and the tax paying community.
