In order to provide community members with access to local resources and information about common school-related questions, two local school district will host a family resource fair for the Santa Clarita Valley later this month.

Presented by the Sulphur Springs Union School District and the William S. Hart Union High School District, the free “Many Families, One Community” resource fair will provide attendees with information sessions, resources from community partners, band performances and art gallery exhibitions.

“I attended last year and, basically, it’s a collaborative effort for the community and for resources,” Sulphur Springs Board President Ken Chase said.  “It’s is a great opportunity for families and the district to learn about resources, special programs for kids and various things about education.”

The resource fair, held at Golden Valley High School, will include breakout sessions about topics like: A to G requirements for high school graduation, coding through the grades, enhancing child and parent relationships, high-risk teen behavior and habits of lifelong learners, among others.

“I think overall the breakout sessions are very informative,” Chase said.  “One of the really nice things about it is it has a kids’ program, so it allows parents to attend the breakout sessions while their younger kids are in the program.”
