Family Engagement October Workshops  

Below you will find details about our family engagement workshops for the month of October. Most family engagement workshops are geared toward parents and caregivers, however, on occasions, we will host sessions that target students.

The contact information we have on file will be used to connect with all our families as friendly reminders through text and email. If we have your correct contact information and you are still not receiving our notifications, check your Spam folder. It is very likely that our notifications are going to that folder. Our text messages come from number 833-282-5500. If you are not receiving text messages, call your phone carrier and tell them to unblock the number 833-282-5500.

We hope to see you at our sessions! Remember that your presence is important as we are always learning new information that helps us support your children’s learning and empowers us to become better advocates.

If you have any questions about our workshops or services or would like to make an appointment to receive individualized support from the family engagement team, please email us at family@onwardwelearn.org or call/text Yisel De Oleo at 401-241-0405.
