Family Involvement Resources

These family resources are great sources for parents, teachers and other project coordinators to use to help engage children in language and literacy learning.  Use the flyers, handouts, invitations and literacy sheets to plan your own family event!  Also, the TROPHIES newsletters are a great extension to the TROPHIES curriculum.
