Preschool offers ‘Links to Learning’
Brighton Preschool in Lynnwood launched “Links to Learning,” a program to enhance dialogue with parents and give constructive guidance on how they can become more involved with their children’s education.
On a monthly basis, parents receive a portfolio that contains a summary of the developmental skills that were emphasized during the previous month, and examples of work done by the child. In addition, parents are given an overview of key skills their children will learn in the upcoming month, including recommended activities that parents can do with their child.
Brighton Preschool is part of Nobel Learning Communities, Inc., a national network of 150 nonsectarian private schools, including preschools, elementary schools, and middle schools in 13 states.

Service learning program helps
Summer Service Learning: Edmonds Community College students helped Eco Encore, a Seattle-based nonprofit, recycle used books, music, movies and software to make money for local environmental organizations.
This summer, Eco Encore held its third consecutive service learning project in partnership with Edmonds Community College. Students collected reusable media and spent two days in a campus computer lab, sorting and cataloging the items. The result of their work was more than $10,000 in new inventory cataloged for Eco Encore.
To participate in service learning, register for fall quarter classes from Sept. 18 to Dec. 8 at Edmonds Community College. For information, call 425-640-1459, e-mail email@example.com or visit http://getstarted.edcc.edu. See the complete class schedule at http://schedule.edcc.edu.
