Brain Building in Progress Week is just a month away - April 14 - 20th! Here are three next steps to take to make BBIP Week a huge success in Boston:
1. Spread the Word
The Brain Building in Progress Week website is up and running - complete with activity ideas, logos and everything you need to celebrate Brain Building in Progress Week, April 14th - 20th. Here's the link to the BBIP Week site: [ http://brainbuildinginprogress.org/bbipweek ]http://brainbuildinginprogress.org/bbipweek. And here's the link to the toolkit with materials (also at the bottom of the BBIP Week page): [ http://brainbuildinginprogress.org/toolkit ]http://brainbuildinginprogress.org/toolkit. Also attached are two versions of the BBIP Week flyer to share with colleagues and parents. Both are meant to be printed double-sided; one is formatted for two flyers per sheet. Please share these with your colleagues and networks!
2. Post Your BBIP Week Events on Facebook
Like last year, the idea is to brand events and activities for young children and families during April 14 - 20 as Brain Building events - and to share information about public opportunities that are open to community members on the BBIP Facebook page: [ http://www.facebook.com/groups/brainbuildinginprogress ]www.facebook.com/groups/brainbuildinginprogress. If you have events happening during BBIP Week, whether they are things that happen regularly like play groups or story hours or special events for BBIP Week, please post them on the Facebook page - and post photos from the event there too after it happens.
3. Invite Elected Officials and Community Leaders to Your BBIP Week Event
Help raise awareness about the importance of the work you do by inviting elected officials and community leaders to your event to see brain building in action! Look up your elected officials at [ http://www.wheredoivotema.com ]www.wheredoivotema.com. If you would like help coordinating a visit, please contact Pat Xavier from BAEE ([ mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ]email@example.com) and I know.
Thanks in advance for being a brain builder!
