Monthly Community Engagement @ Greater Friendship!


Our kids can’t wait –Monthly Community Engagement on Education Session

Join us every third Tuesday of each month beginning Tuesday November 19th, for our Community Engagement on Education Session at Greater Friendship Baptist Church 2600 E. 38th Street Minneapolis, MN 55406 from 5:30 till 7:00pm

In our monthly Community Engagement Sessions we will discuss topics such as what are the biggest challenges facing schools in our community, how can we work together to make sure our kids get the best education possible and how can we make sure that the interests’ of students are at the forefront of every policy decision?

StudentsFirst hopes to bring together a broad cross-section of parents, students, teachers, administrators, business and community leaders and elected officials, to act on our shared responsibility of ensuring that every student attends a great school, has great teachers and gets a high quality education.

We look forward to seeing you there.
Please RSVP for this important community discussion to www.Studentsfirst.org/minnesotaEvents.
