Why include parent invitations?
Parent connection is optional, but has significant benefits during and after class. Connected parents may:
  • Read their child's stories via a private link
  • Receive notifications when their child publishes new work
  • Retain copies of their child's stories after class is done (data portability)
  • Continue writing on their own under parental supervision when class is over.
