In the lead up to Invent Event, Twirl will be hosting mini Invent Events at four Taos elementary schools (Enos Garcia, Ranchos, Taos Day School and Arroyos del Norte) during their parent-teacher conference days and community nights. These mini events will feature a variety of self-guided stations for families to explore and create together and support the schools' efforts to further engage their parents in their children's learning as well as create excitement and awareness about Invent Event! We will also be hosting a mini Invent Event at the Taos Youth and Family Center on Friday April 6 from 1 - 4 which will be open to the public. Enjoy this appetizer to the main event!
