With parents Ema Mares, Irma Pascual and Luz Alcaraz from Community United Elementary School
Yesterday was OUSD's Annual Volunteer Recognition Ceremony. It was great to meet so many of the parents and community members who volunteer in our schools. Above is a photo of me with several of the moms who volunteer at CUES, Community United Elementary School. They are room parents, which means that they liasion with the school leadership and advocate for the needs of the students in the classes they volunteer in.
I really value the work of these parents, and the hundreds of other parents and community members who were there. Our schools don't work without them, and our students do better when parents are informed about how to support their children.
