Meet NBA Star Stephen Curry!
Share Parents and Families Newsletter link with your parents for access to resources and information that support parent involvement and student achievement!
Monthly Activities Calendar
The parents & Families section in txel.org provides relevant and accessible resources for parents and families of English learners to support the education of their children.
The following calendar is from DEMCO and not bilingual, but can be translated on your website or with an extension.
Share resources as a link through Remind, SeeSaw, email, or any other platform you use to communicate with parents. Make sure that you have a mail list just for parents of ELs in order to meet Title III requirements.
Great idea from an administrator - take the calendar and embed important dates for your school, QR codes, and links for resources and more information. Some days you have important district information and others you have fun activities that support student learning. It's a Win-Win!!
