The Socorro Independent School District will hold its 10th annual Mother-Daughter Conference this weekend at Americas High School.
The conference, for 6th through 12th grade female students in the district, allows daughters and their mothers or mother figures to spend a day bonding, learning and having fun.
This year’s keynote speaker is Janice Masters, who was part of the team that helped launch the original mother-daughter conference at Americas High School before it became a district-wide event.
The conference will have sessions and information tables on the district, early college programs, advanced academic academies, as well as college and career opportunities. Cyberbullying, self-esteem, and self-confidence workshops also will be available.
Games and team building activities are included in the day’s agenda. EPCC will provide a hands-on demonstration on making crepes from scratch. Texas A&M Colonia Program will share how to unwind from the stresses of being a female in today’s hectic world through hand massage therapy.
Salle De Long Fencing School will help mothers and their daughters work on strengthening the mind and body by experiencing fencing.
The event is free, but attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods and/or a non-perishable food donation. Light breakfast and lunch will be served.
