This issue of the Quarterly Newsletter features:
- How RAFT honors a diverse range of educators for exceptional hands-on teaching with our quarterly Hands-On Award and the annual Robert Brownlee Award. We hope these profiles inspire you to tell your story or nominate an exceptional science teacher!
- How RAFT is helping educators make the connections between the Common Core Standards and hands-on teaching.
- New and coming-soon highlights– RAFT online store Educator Accounts, Back to School (better than ever!), and a peek at our plan’s for this year’s annual fundraising dinner.
We hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and, as always, thanks for all of your support!
- Refresh, Restore, Reset - During these so-called lazy days of summer, we could not be busier and more focused than we are right now getting everything ready for Back-to-School, the biggest shopping time of the year for teachers. We have been sprucing up both RAFT Bay Area locations with improved store layout and signage to give our members the best shopping experience possible. We can't wait to show off the new appearance and feel of our stores plus plenty of materials, supplies, and hands-on teaching resources. RAFT Back to School Info: RAFT Redwood City - Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27; RAFT San Jose - Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4.
