Hello Summer Learning Network Steering Committee Members,


I wanted to pass along information about Summer Learning Day coming up on June 21, 2012 (http://www.summerlearning.org/sld). Summer Learning Day is the national awareness day to highlight the importance of summertime programs and services. It is a chance to showcase work in your community and generate increased support for summer learning in San Francisco and nationwide.  Similar to last year, there will be Summer Learning Day events across San Francisco during the week of June 21st.  Examples of Summer Learning Day events include a community open house, inviting Board of Directors to tour a program, hosting a guest speaker or a panel discussion about summer learning. For more ideas, the Summer Learning Day website has many resources: http://www.summerlearning.org/sld.

Programs are encouraged to register their event to share resources (and also enter a raffle to win prizes!). I will be bringing flyers and can answer questions about Summer Learning Day at the Steering Committee Meeting this Tuesday, but I also wanted to share information in advance- feel free to share it with others.

Please let me know if you’d like any other information. Thank you!

Hello Summer Learning Network Steering Committee Members-

Input from all of you is greatly valued, and since so many people were away for Spring break, a small remnant of us participated in a conference call today in order to keep the work of the Network moving forward.  Please see the attached notes from the conference call.


The next Steering Committee Meeting will be: Tuesday, April 10th from 3:30-5:00pm.

Location: DCYF, 1390 Market Street, Suite 900 (in the West Wing meeting room)


On the agenda will be:

·         A quick look at April professional development days and the mini-resource fair

·         Planning the May Conference for direct service staff- reviewing a draft schedule, making suggestions for workshops and presenters, coming up with ideas for the opening session, ideas for outreach.

·         A Summer Learning Network “Co-Chair”- discuss whether or not a Co-Chair is what Steering Committee members want; discuss best process for choosing a “Co-Chair” from a Network CBO to co-chair the Summer Learning Network alongside DCYF.


Thank you for all of you who RSVP’d in a timely way for the last Steering Committee meeting.  If you could RSVP for the April 10th meeting by Friday April 6th, that would be great.  Hope to see most of you there.
