It has been my privilege to facilitate the implementation of the Parents Step Ahead educational curriculum with our Parent Liaisons.  From the moment I met Lupita Colmenero and listened to her share her passion about the curriculum, I knew this was something I wanted to support.  The Parents Step Ahead curriculum provides our parents with valuable tools that will have a positive impact on themselves personally as well as their families.  The curriculum covers many critical topics such as family communication, and health and wellness.  Parents also learn valuable lessons about financial literacy and how to help their children succeed at every level of their education.  The format of the lessons provides time for meaningful discussions and activities that support the learning. I am confident that our parents who attend these classes will be more equipped to handle the challenges they face, and our students will experience more success in school as a result.
