Riverbank School District Plans Parent Summit 2017

Getting families more involved in education is the goal of an upcoming ‘Parent Summit’ planned for Riverbank Unified School District.

Riverbank High School English teacher and AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) Director Nancy Garcia, along with RUSD English Language Development Coordinator Rosie Ramos and Program/Grant Manager CASA del Rio FRC, Araseli Zamora have organized the Parent Summit for families within the district to engage in activities that will enhance education for their children.

On Saturday, March 11 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., families can participate in two 45-minute workshops that will provide information on the following topics: College, AVID, Technology, Mental Health, and Literacy in the home, with the workshops hosted at the Riverbank High School campus in the Ray Fauria Gym. Breakfast snacks will be provided as well as a lunch and child care for kids ages 2 to 8.

Former Riverbank High School student, Sacramento State University graduate Marcelina Zamora, will be the guest speaker at the Parent Summit. She has a Masters in Psychology.

“We want to encourage people to register due to limited spacing,” explained Garcia. “In an effort to engage parents to be partners in their child’s education, we felt that a summit would be a way to accomplish that. After months of collaborating and planning, we are excited to share these topics with the parents in our community.”

There are a limited number of spaces, so registering early is encouraged. Register by Tuesday, March 7 at any RUSD school office or online at
