News, schools, and views from a uniquely Lowell perspective

Education Forum this Saturday

It’s too early to rake leaves, so please plan to attend the 2nd Annual Mary Bacigalupo Educational Forum at the Stoklosa School (corner of School and Broadway) this Saturday, 8:00 am – noon (coffee will be served). This year’s Forum features nationally-known speaker and educator Joyce Epstein (Director of the Center on School, Family and Community Partnerships at Johns Hopkins University) and is entitled:  “Then and Now: New Directions for Family, School and Community Partnerships.” The Forum is free and open to the public – please join other concerned community members as we strive to continue the efforts to provide community support for children that we began at last year’s forum. 

Last year’s keynote speaker was Dr. Jeffrey Howard of The Efficacy Institute . Over 200 people attended and were engergized by Dr. Howard’s statement that “smart is something you can get.”   Dr. Howard’s message that the schools can’t do it alone and that a community-wide campaign of proficiency for all children is necessary to our school district’s success gave us the big picture.  Dr. Epstein’s National Network of Partnership Schools can give us the tools and examples of how to make it happen, school-by-school and student-by-student.
