On Wednesday, June 13th, the #PTchat crew will provide an open chat session to close out the school year and help you create a summer plan to take your family engagement efforts to the next level in 2012-2013.
We've covered a great deal of topics this school year. Below are all the 12-13 #PTchat topics and archived chats. What is the biggest family engagement strength at your school? What do you hope to improve upon in 12-13? Join us for a planning session on Wednesday night at 9PM EDT / 6PM PST.
