We’re already entering the third week of activities at ABRACE—how time flies!
We invite parents to meet this Saturday, Sept. 21 at 10:30 a.m. in room 219, where ABRACE administration will explain a bit more about ABRACE’s mission and work, answer questions, and solicit new ideas. We also will describe the special events that will occur across the next few months.
We need your help! Organizations like ABRACE that formed IN the community FOR the community depend on the involvement and support of families.
How can you contribute?
Take advantage of the opportunity to follow and celebrate your child’s progress, help teachers, see your child interact with others, and participate in lessons about Brazilian culture, history, and music.
In the next few days, you will receive by email a link to Sign-Up Genius, with the calendar for each classroom, so parents can rotate volunteering assignments.

Documentation for each student

If you use the website version, please print and fill out a form for each child enrolled in an ABRACE class and submit it to your child’s teacher before Sept. 28.

We have two classrooms—one at a basic level and one at an intermediate level—and there are still spots available. Please consider enrolling and invite your friends! If interested, please fill out the enrollment form, which can be found on the ABRACE homepage: http://abracebrazil.org/
