Learning and Support Opportunity for English Learner (EL) Parents

Parents and Children Together (PACT) has partnered with the Kaimuki-McKinley-Roosevelt Complex Area to offer a 15-week course for EL parents to learn about helping their EL students succeed in school. These sessions are facilitated by PACT Sundays Project staff and will be held VIRTUALLY via Zoom in the 2nd semester of this school year.

All EL parents are invited to participate, however the target audience is Chuukese and Marshallese parents, so interpreters for those languages will be provided at every session.
