Socorro ISD Honors Parents who Participated in Latino Family Literacy Project

The Socorro Independent School District recently recognized more than 125 parents who participated in the Latino Family Literacy Project during the 2016-2017 school year.

The family reading program, offered in 11 SISD schools, is designed to engage and establish reading routines between parents and their children.

It also offers parents of middle and high school students information regarding high school and college courses their children can take, and assists them with the college application process.

“This is a great program for parents to be involved at the campus level,” said Karina Schulte, SISD’s bilingual director. “We are helping parents to come in and learn how to better support their kids through literacy.”

The goal for the 2017-2018 school year is for the literacy program to be included at all SISD schools, Schulte said.

At the recognition, SISD Superintendent Dr. José Espinoza spoke to families, congratulating parents for being involved in their children’s education and the importance of families reading together.

Annette Roa, a mother of two students at Bill Sybert School, joined the program because her family was looking for something they could do together. She loved getting to know the other parents.

“The most important thing was it opened the doors for us to read together as a family,” Roa said. “We would go home, sit down and start reading. We were really amazed. My son also picked up the Spanish language in the process, which was another reason we got involved. The atmosphere was awesome. It was just something cool and fun to do with my kids.”

In addition to a catered dinner, families were entertained by Socorro High School’s mariachi group and the Mission Ridge Elementary School ballet and folklorico team.
