Many topics have been explored and discussed as a method to access and practice English during the parenting classes. The following are a few examples:
Holiday traditions: the origins and traditions of holidays were shared through various methods-appropriate holiday greetings, vocabulary, foods, songs, poems, and more. During the holiday season, parents learned Christmas carols that they performed for family members at a Family Fun Night. Valentine cards were made for loved ones.
During the second trimester the focus was on cooking foods indigenous to regions of each student's birthplace. Students were able to practice their English by conducting a cooking class in English. Mrs. Snider participated by cooking up a mid-western breakfast to share with parents as well.
During this year's government shutdown, questions were asked that led to a lesson on the branches of the government and their roles. Some students decided to contact their California representatives to express concern and also to ask questions.
Parents have had opportunities to participate in Santiago activities and programs. They have become more involved in PTSA. We want to congratulate all of our parents who participated in this year's Parent Education activities.
