FAB-U Parent Workshops
“Families at Bixby University (FAB-U)”
Florence Bixby’s EXCLUSIVE offering of six FREE family workshops this year.
“How to Develop Confident and Successful Writers, From Early TK to Fifth Grade”
Will be taught by Mrs. Nickell (Florence Bixby’s very own highly-skilled literacy specialist) and myself. Families are encouraged to bring their children to the mini-workshop, as it will be an interactive experience for families and children to work together using Chromebooks and writing support materials.
Research shows that students who are proficient writers are more prepared for college and career success (http://bit.ly/2mnx21B. Conley, 2007: “Toward a More Comprehensive Conception of College Readiness”), which is why we have selected a school-wide focus of quality writing instruction for all students.
