Parents, Community Invited To Back To School Bash

October 9, 2009

Parents and the community will get a chance to learn about academic and extracurricular activities offered by the Houston Independent School District at an Oct. 12 event at Lamar High School.

The Back to School Bash event also offers a chance to meet with representatives from partner agencies like food-services company Aramark, Volunteers in Public Schools, the Success Express bus, various universities and more.

The Central Region of HISD has held three Community Connections meetings throughout the school year for the past three years. The purpose is to keep parents and the community informed about the district’s initiatives, receive their feedback regarding educational issues, and improve HISD’s efforts to provide a quality education for children.

“Last year was the first year we started off the school year with our Back to School Bashes,” said Adriana Tamez, Central Region Superintendent in a statement. “We received such positive feedback that we have decided to hold them again this year as part of our strategic plan for increasing achievement.”

The event begins at 6 p.m. on Oct. 12 at Lamar High School, 3325 Westheimer Rd.
