Weekly Resources to Kick Off March

Welcome to March! We consider this to be the start of spring – though there’s snow in the forecast, and it feels like winter here in the North East. Keep an eye out for our March Newsletter on Tuesday as it will announce our Spring Webinar Series. We have a great line up of FREE, live events to give you some new ideas for the last part of the school year. These events will also be a great way to meet many of our Summer Workshop instructors as well as our Learning Futures Summit presenters.
