Early Learning Roundtable Catholic Identity collected ideas and Recording:
The May Early Learning Roundtable on Thursday, May 20th focused on how you bring Catholic Identity into your classrooms. This was a great discussion to learn how others are keeping our Catholic Faith Centered Learning environments present throughout the day in our programs. I have put together a document that collected all the ideas from those that were able to attend the Roundtable and for those that emailed their ideas later. I have attached it to this Early Learning Update Email. These are really short notes on all these wonderful ideas– if there are things you would be interested in learning more about please contact me and I will get you connected to the Early Learning Leader at that school to learn more. Please also see Zoom Link below for the recording of the roundtable if you have not had the opportunity to view it – Enjoy!

Early Learning Roundtable: Catholic Identity – Zoom
Licensed ONLY: Check to make sure all staff will achieve 10 STARS hours for Fiscal year July 1st2020 – June 30th 2021
There is less than one month to go to make sure that all licensed staff will achieve 10 STARS hours for the fiscal year between July 1st 2020- June 30th, 2021. Key Note: When staff are logged into their MERIT account and are under the “My Record” and “Professional Record” Tab they can scroll down to “State Approved Training History”; then look under “Annual Continuing Education Training”. In that section there are two small drop downs “Training Year” and “Fiscal Year” … please make sure you select 2021 for “Fiscal Year” and leave “Training Year” Blank. If you do this the system will accumulate all the training hours completed from July 1st, 2020 to June 30th, 2021. Please let me know if you have any questions on this and I am more than happy to hop on a zoom call and share my screen to show you! If you or your staff still need hours please direct them to the Early Learning Landing Page to find trainings.
