We have upcoming FREE webinar events! Interested?

We are committed to supporting literacy educators across the state during this time of distance learning. As we enter the last few weeks of school, we want to offer free professional development to enhance and refine your practices. We want to be responsive to your current needs, so please consider attending one of these informative presentations featuring experts across the state.

These presentations will all be held via Zoom. More information will be forthcoming regarding registration and how to join the events.

Once again, this is FREE, and open to both CRA members and non-members alike, as we work to give back to our education community!

Please share with interested colleagues and stay tuned to this website or any of our social networks (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) for the latest news!


Dear CRA members and colleagues,

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, the CRA will be cancelling the remainder of our events this school calendar year, including the Saturday workshop with Kate Roberts, the Arminda Hudon workshop in Willington, and the Esther Geva workshop in April.

We are also cancelling our annual Awards Banquet on May 7th, and thus ending the call for nominations for our CRA awards at this time.

If you have already registered for one of these workshops, your credit card payments will be refunded. If you paid by PO, please reach out to their districts to cancel any POs.

This is a challenging time for all educators, and we hope you find ways to continue your professional growth and share your love of literacy with students, albeit in more creative, virtual ways.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have, and please stay safe.

Many thanks,
The CRA Board of Directors
