Pieces of Gold
This signature event provides students with an annual celebration of the arts. Now in its 30th year, it regularly features more than 800 Wake County children performing at Memorial Auditorium.
Early Childhood Literacy
A new program for us, the Partnership began working closely with the Wake school system and numerous non-profits to help coordinate efforts and provide resources to improve early literacy skills from Pre-K through third grade. This year's work includes four literacy summits in eastern Wake County scheduled for early fall.
The Partnership is constantly looking for places where it can help build leaders in our classroom. Those efforts recently helped lead to two new Leadership Magnet schools where the schools will incorporate the lessons from Stephen R. Covey's work on the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Annual Education Summit
This event draws 400 to 600 business leaders, elected officials, educators, and community volunteers each year who gather to learn more about current education issues from closing the achievement gap to changes brought about by the Common Core.
As part of its work to Promote Best Practices, Connect Resources and Engage Leaders, the Partnership has organized several advisory councils to guide its work and to be a catalyst. Those councils include the College Advisory Council, CFO Advisory Council and Public Education Advisory Council.
