2020 is officially underway and so are Parenting Partner’s workshops across the country. We are excited to see schools inviting parents and starting the workshops on their campuses.
A district we want to feature this week is McFarland Unified School District in McFarland, California. Facilitators received a refresher training in fall of 2019 and they are eager to put what they learned into practice this semester and involve even more parents at their schools.
The workshops recently started at McFarland Junior High with the help and commitment of the devoted facilitators and the principal, Mr. Robles and Vice Principal, Mr. Grijalva. The support from the school leaders has had a profound impact on the success of the Parenting Partners and Family Meals Challenge workshops. We also want to give a special shout out to some of the great facilitators taking the lead at McFarland Junior High: Leady Montoya, Rene Briones, Blanca Reyes, and Marisa Flores.
There was a great turn out for the workshop with parents excited to return for the 2nd week. The team at McFarland Junior High have done a wonderful job at engaging parents in their community and coming up with new ways to invite parents.
We appreciate the dedicated facilitators and we look forward to hearing the impact the workshops have on parents in their community.
