Lessons from the Field

Reach out to parents in a variety of ways. Translate fliers and letters into other languages, and follow up with personal invitations and phone calls, to make family events more welcoming to parents whose first language is not English.


Lessons from the Field features strategies, tips and advice from our Sharing the Dream grantees. At the end of each school year, we ask them “What advice would you give to other schools who want to start a project like yours?” Their insightful answers have generated a wealth of ideas for other educators to try in their own schools.
