It’s a Game Changer: How parent participation sets schools up for success

HISD is readying to “Change the Game” with its annual Parent Organization Expo. It’s the perfect opportunity for parents to consider the benefits parent organizations provide for the schools they support and what a difference their involvement can make.

The Parent Organization Expo is set for Feb. 4, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th St., 77092).
