Parents and teachers, clear your Thursday, 2/4/16 night calendar!  At the next Haisley PTO meeting, 826michigan will be presenting for us.  Megan Gilson will be on hand at the PTO meeting from 7-7:30 PM to introduce parents to the amazing progamming that 826michigan does. Megan will review:

  • The national umbrella organization 826 National
  • Founded by Dave Eggers
  • Why they have store fronts
  • The theme
  • Student population in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit
And then talk about programs that are open to the public:
  • Creative Writing Workshops! 
  • Drop-in writing in A2 and Ypsi
  • TUTORING in A2 and Ypsi (students ages 8-18, drop-in, homework in all subject areas, and parent/guardian needs to come on the first day to provide some info and fill out paperwork
  • Hand out programs flyers 
  • Show some examples of our student publications
Megan will end by leading a fun/silly 826-style activity for the parents.  
Plan to be there– it promises to be a fun presentation!  For more information on 826michigan visit their website.  See you Thursday, 2/4/2016 at 7PM!
