March - May
Reaching out to the Sacramento community (schools, parents, districts, etc.) as well as welcoming new teachers to our training program has been one of our main priorities. Some events we participated at include:
First parents' Family night - Arden Library
ALEFE booth at Dyer-Kelly Elementary
ALEFE booth at SALAM commmunity center
First Teachers' information session - Rancho Cordova Library.
January - March
Because it takes a village to educate a child, we reached out to connect and network with strong partners in California educational village. It was a pleasure having a delegation in each of the following conferences:
1. SCALTC annual conference (Southern California Arabic Language Teachers Council)
2. CABE dual language immersion conference
3. CCSA Charter School conference
Three of our teachers have proudly received a full scholarship to STARTALK training summer camp June-July 2017 at Occidental College. They are expected to participate at other training workshops during 2018.
