District IX Early Childhood Summit scheduled for Sept. 19

HISD Board of Education member Wanda Adams is partnering with the Family Learning Academy to host the District IX Early Childhood Summit on Saturday, Sept. 19.

The free event will take place at Reynolds Elementary School (9601 Rosehaven, 77051) from 8:00 a.m. until noon, and will connect families with resources to help parents engage in early childhood best practices and support students’ success.

The event will feature a panel of HISD departments, administrators, and community leaders, workshops, and a community resource fair with information for parents. District representatives will also be signing up families to participate in HISD’s HIPPY program, which provides a school-readiness program for parents of 3- to 5-year-olds in the district.

“The education of our children starts well before they enter school,” said Adams. “We want to make sure parents are aware of the best practices and resources available that will help them ensure their children are prepared for success on their very first day of school.”

Registration and a light breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. Translation will be available. The event will also feature door prizes and lunch. For more details, please visit www.houstonisd.org/FLA or call the HISD Family and Community Engagement Department at 713-556-7290.
