CAN’s Holiday Newsletter – December 19, 2018
2018 Reflections and Looking Ahead

Happy Holidays!

As the father of two young children, I have the unique opportunity to watch a fair amount of Sesame Street. In a recent episode Elmo boils down the spirit of the season with his song, “it’s all about kindness.” At CAN, we are consistently overwhelmed with the kindness in this field. The kindness and generosity you display in your work every day makes all the difference for the children and families of California.

The California AfterSchool Network is Thankful for You

Thank you!

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, the California AfterSchool Network would like to thank you for your tireless work on behalf of children, families, and communities each and every day. Thank you for being a person of integrity who chooses this work.  You will never fully know how important you are to the children and families you serve or fully understand their gratitude. We at CAN are thankful for you because our world is better because of you.

Rock the OST Vote!

I Voted!

Happy Election Day! Today, I had the great privilege of walking my completed ballot to a local polling place with a group of colleagues. While we may all have had unique voting patterns, we all made the point to make our civic engagement a community activity.

It has been a busy couple of weeks in the world of CAN, and Expanded Learning. Last week, I had the opportunity to spend Lights on Afterschool with three of the most influential leaders in after school history! These leaders include Jodi Grant, Executive Director of the Afterschool Alliance; Michael Funk, the Director of the CDE’s Expanded Learning Division; and Tom Torlakson, California’s Superintendent of Public Instruction.
