Let’s hear it for more parent support! The teachers of The Community Classroom are excited to announce To The Core, An Education Podcast for Parents. To The Core is a weekly education podcast that aims to help better prepare parents and caregivers to support and advocate for their children. Each week, The Community Classroom founder Dr. Megan Allen interviews expert teachers to unpack a particularly complex parent question in simplified ways. And the best part? It happens in 20-25 minutes, just long enough to listen while parents are shuttling kids to soccer practice or loading the dishwasher.

Do your kids know what a record is? Now’s the time for them to find out! There will be a virtual Podcast Launch and Family Dance Party on Zoom from 6:30-7:30 pm EST on September 7th, featuring Community Classroom-endorsed DJ Bobby G (a father of two) spinning live. If your kids have never seen someone scratch a record, this is their moment.
