We Need Your Feedback

Tristar Reads would not be what it is without YOU. Would you lend us your time and thoughts by letting us know how you think the Tristar Reads summer reading program is going so far? It should only take a couple of minutes of your time and we would greatly value what you have to say. 

Those who complete the survey will be entered for a chance to win an Amazon gift card. 

Join TSS and TennesseeCAN for a Back to School Webinar

School is around the corner and with so much uncertainty around the details of when and how we’ll start back this fall, we wanted to invite you to join the discussion with a panel of parents, teachers, school leaders, and state legislators to talk about your concerns and questions. 

RSVP to participate in this discussion with diverse voices from across the state on July 29th at 11 am CT here
