students working in classroom

During the months of April and May, Migrant Education Program, CTE, Plaza Comunitaria, STEM and School Improvement partnered to serve migrant students and their families. The program reached out to Pre-K through 8th grade students.

The event was held at Obsidian Middle School for six weeks and included English classes for adults, parenting classes such as QPR (Question, Persuade, and Refer), Juntos, Nutrition, School Readiness, and Darkness to Light training. For those with little ones, childcare was provided. For students in grades K-8th, they learned about English Language Arts, Math and STEM.

Every week, a great meal brought families, educators, and volunteers together; all gathering at the same table to build relationships and learn from each other’s cultures, customs and personal experiences.

To finalize, a great tertulia (social gathering) was held in which piñatas were a very popular event along with the photo booth.

The Migrant Education Program would like to thank the STEM program for providing food, stipends for educators and supplies.
