Advocate for EDMO Programming with this Template

At EDMO, we understand the importance of engaging, empowering, and enjoyable expanded learning opportunities for kids. That's why we've created a 'Parent Advocacy Toolkit' to help you bring our incredible programs to your child's school!

One of the most effective ways to advocate for EDMO programming is by reaching out to your school's principal or superintendent. To make this process as simple as possible, we've crafted a template letter that you can easily customize and send to your school's decision-makers. This letter highlights the benefits of partnering with EDMO and the potential impact on your child's educational experience.

Here's what to do:

Review the Template Letter: We've provided a parent-to-school official template letter below. It explains the key features of EDMO's expanded learning programs, as well as our expertise in securing funding and helping schools access opportunities like the California Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P).

Personalize the Letter: To make the letter even more impactful, personalize it by adding specific details about your child's school and your own experience as a parent. Don't forget to include your name, your child's name, and the name of your child's school.

Send the Letter: Copy and paste the personalized letter into an email or print it out and send it to your school's principal or superintendent. Be sure to include an appropriate subject line, like "A Parent's Recommendation for a Fantastic Expanded Learning Program: EDMO!"

Follow Up: After sending the letter, consider following up with a phone call or in-person meeting to discuss the possibility of bringing EDMO programs to your child's school. This can help demonstrate your commitment to your child's education and the importance of expanded learning opportunities.

By taking these simple steps, you can play a crucial role in advocating for EDMO programming at your child's school. Together, we can create more opportunities for kids to have incredible STEAM and SEL experiences that foster a love for learning and growth!

Dear [Principal/Superintendent's Name],

I hope you're doing well. As a proud parent of a student at [School Name], I am always eager to find new ways to support and enhance our children's educational experiences. Recently, I discovered a wonderful organization called EDMO that offers high-quality expanded learning programs, and I couldn't help but share my excitement with you, hoping it could be a valuable addition to our school.

EDMO is an organization that truly understands the importance of engaging and enjoyable after-school and summer enrichment programs for K-6 grade children. Their curriculum focuses on STEAM and SEL principles, creating hands-on learning experiences that perfectly complement what our children learn during the school day.

What really caught my attention about EDMO is their experience in helping schools access funding opportunities, such as the California Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P). They offer support in securing the necessary funding and can even help combine multiple funding sources to bring their amazing programs to life.

I truly believe that partnering with EDMO could provide our kids with incredible opportunities to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. As a parent, I can see the lasting positive impact that such programs would have on our children and their overall educational experience.I kindly ask you to consider looking into a partnership with EDMO for our school. You can find more information about their programs, mission, and values on their website (https://edmo.org/). Thank you so much for your time, consideration, and your unwavering commitment to providing our children with the best possible education.

Warm regards,
