Migrant and Bilingual Conference Teaches Parents How to Prepare for Future

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- Hundreds of migrant and bilingual families gathered at Pasco High School Saturday.

They were learning about how to help their children be successful in school and in life.

The annual Pasco School District Migrant and Bilingual Parent Advisory Committee conference provided lots of resources for families to envision a brighter future.

The event featured informational sessions to teach parents about guiding their children down a positive path.

Some of the topics included opportunities for their child to go to college, how to talk with kids about their future, reading efficiency and good health.

"All of the sessions that we have, have to do with education and things that we can do from our end. We're helping the parents learn more so that they can help their children at home and to be more successful. Working together in partnership with the parents is really the key," said Lorriane Landon, Parent Advisory Committee Coordinator.

The parent advisory committee that runs the event, provides input to the school district superintendent on how to improve programs for migrant and bilingual students.

The conference continues to attract hundreds of participants after over ten years of community work.
