Contributed by the Watsonville Police Department
Watsonville Police and E.A. Hall Middle School Counselor JoAnn Borbolla, Parent Education Specialist Amanda Sandoval and Migrant Teacher Yolanda Melgoza have collaborated to create a parent workshop series, USA (UnidosSalimosAdelante) which began last week at E.A. Hall.
The mission of the series is to bridge the gaps between school, home and the community. Themes of the remaining workshops are safety, gangs, drugs and alcohol.
Participants engage in hands-on training providing parents with strategies to play a more active role in their child’s life, both in and outside of school. Community resources will be provided to help promote pro-social activities for adolescents, and prevent children from becoming involved in gangs, drugs and alcohol abuse.
Anyone interested is encourage to attend, there is no fee and child care will be provided. The remaining sessions will be held on the following dates:
01/29/13 (Community Safety)
All or one of the free workshops can be attended by members of the community. Workshops will be presented in Spanish with English translation available.
