Junta de Padres

Do you know a Spanish-speaking family who wants to be more engaged in our schools?
Please join the Academic Liaison Program in our monthly meeting “Junta de Padres”
The Renton School District Middle School Spanish Speaking Family Nights.

We host these nights once a month where Spanish speaking families talk about anything and everything that is important to supporting their middle school students. The goal is for Spanish-speaking families from the entire district to discuss and problem solve together. In the past we have talked about attendance, grades, drugs, high school transition, college readiness, and so on. All of our meetings are in Spanish and English, and include pizza dinner, child care, raffles, and prizes for bringing another family.

JUNTA DE PADRES is for Spanish-Speaking Families with students in Middle School, join us 6:00 to 7:30pm
