You may be familiar with a group in our community called Alamance Citizens for Education (ACE).Â They are a citizen’s group that looks at the issue of community involvement in our public schools. They spearhead many programs and projects, including the Classroom Closet which provides supplies for classroom teachers. I am on their email list and so receive their online newsletter.
You may be on that list too and if so, you may have read the recent article entitled “Playing to Learn”, but if not, I encourage you to click on the link below and read it. It does a great job of describing the kinds of classrooms that our children need: www.nytimes.com/2010/02/02/opinion/02engel.html?ref=opinion
