Hot off the press! Our 2019 AttendaNCe Counts Community Toolkit is designed to help schools and community partners get the word out about the importance of regular school attendance in preschool and the early grades. It includes a factsheet about chronic absence in NC, ways to take to action, an attendance proclamation for Superintendents to sign, social media tools and more--all in time for Attendance Awareness Month in September!

Check it out here and share in your community: bit.ly/2KVixMy

This staff Friday goes out to the one and only Stevie, who we will all miss terribly. Stevie's brought a lot of creativity and passion to her work in this office, and is really dedicated to learning in so many ways (from technological skills, to thinking about equity, to pushing for new trainings) and has made a huge difference in the field and at our office because of her drive to make the world around her a better place,🌟🌟🌟

We wish her the best of luck in her new role as an Early Years Professional Learning Specialist with WIDA through the University of Wisconsin! (Her last day isn't until September 6th, but I'm posting this now). If you think you have what it takes to fill her shoes, you can learn more about the position at buncombepfc.org/employment. Thanks for everything, Stevie! -BPFC Staff.

Region A Partnership for Children

We are so so excited about this month, not only because it’s National Ice Cream Month, but we have partnered up with the I Pledge for Ice Cream Project in all of our locations! 🍦 As a sweet way to say, “Thank you for Your Patriotism”, starting on July 1st (TODAY!!) from 4-7 m, we will be giving any child (ages 12 and under, accompanied by an adult) who can recite the Pledge of Allegiance a free kids cake cone, cup, or one of our signature warm waffle cones! Patriotic participants should come to either of our locations for the kick off event!

After the kick off, we will be holding additional I Pledge for Ice Cream Events every Monday in July from 4-7 pm! That’s five I Pledge events this month!!

Come out and support your patriotism starting today at 4pm! 🇺🇸🇺🇸
