Happy Snow Day!! I want to remind you of two wonderful opportunities available through your RARC membership: the Teachers as Readers grant and the Parents and Reading workshop. We would love to see the number of applications rise this year. Remember, you can’t win the grant or the workshop if you don’t apply! What better time to complete the application than a snow day?

Parents and Reading
This opportunity brings a parent workshop and FREE books to your school!
Each year, the RARC works with one school to facilitate a Parents and Reading Workshop that includes free books!
