Family Learning

To engage our ABRSD families and community, we’ve created a Family Learning Series. This year our topics are connected to our district focus on building resilience through mindset, mindfulness, and movement. If you cannot attend, please watch the presentations on our YouTube channel

Please note that some of the events may not be videotaped due to copyright.  We will include links to other available videos by these presenters that are informative to view.  You can review last year's presentations in the Family Learning Series archives
