CES hosts Fiesta of Learning
Calhoun Elementary School hosted its annual Fiesta of Learning on Nov. 29. The Fiesta of Learning is an opportunity for parents of ESOL children to gain some helpful information and strategies that they can use at home with their child.
The Fiesta of Learning is also an opportunity to foster a productive partnership between our school and our students’ parents.
During the Fiesta, parents created educational games to play with their children. These games are designed to help students practice basic skills at home, such as multiplication facts, synonyms and antonyms, and contractions, just to name a few.
A special thank you goes to Family Services Parent Involvement Coordinator Marie Funes and all the volunteers who made the Fiesta possible.
