Parents and guardians of students in the San Diego County
Office of Education’s (SDCOE) Juvenile Court and Community Schools enjoyed
food, games, and networking recently at a special potluck.
The Greet and Treat Potluck was put on by members of SDCOE’s
Parent Guardian Engagement Team. It was held Oct. 29 in South County and Oct.
30 in North County. More than 70 people attended the two events.
The get-together was focused on providing fun while inviting
family members to stay connected with the Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS)
as engaged partners.
"I appreciated the unity and diversity of all the
people coming together in JCC. It was awesome!” said Rosie, one of the parents
who attended. “The games showed me how I can better support my children. I want
to learn more through School Site Council and stay involved."
Parents and guardians were able to connect with SDCOE
employees to have specific questions answered.
"I learned how important it is to communicate with
school staff in order to help my child,” said Carmen, whose son attends East
Mesa School. “I am willing to be involved because I want to show my children
the importance of parent support."
Teachers’ assistants supervised child care for more than 40
children at the two events.
