Hispanic Parent Summit to offer free workshops and resources for families

HISD District IX Board Trustee Wanda Adams has partnered with the Family Learning Academy to host the District IX Hispanic Parent Summit from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, at Anderson Elementary School (5727 Ludington 77035). The free event will connect families with resources that support student success.

The event will feature panels, workshops, and a community resource fair with information for parents on topics such as helping English as a Second Language (ESL) students at home, developing young children’s literacy, getting involved in the school community, and paying for college. Raul Peimbert, Emmy award-winning Univision news anchor, will provide the keynote address, and HISD Trustee Juliet Stipeche will facilitate a panel on HISD resources.

“I want all the parents in District IX to have access to educational resources that will equip them with the knowledge they need to help their children make the best decisions regarding their future education, college, and careers,” said Trustee Adams.

Registration and a light breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. The panel and all workshops will be held with translation in English and Spanish. The event will also feature raffles, free child care, and lunch. For more details, please visit www.houstonisd.org/FLA or call the HISD Family and Community Engagement Department at 713-556-7290.
