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.”
This year, attendees will also hear band performances from students in the Sulphur Springs district, La Mesa Junior High School, Sierra Vista Junior High School, Canyon High School and Golden Valley High School.
An art gallery with award-winning entries from the elementary, junior high and high schools will be on display as well.
Families and community members will also have the chance to hear about resources provided by local agencies like College of the Canyons, the city of Santa Clarita, the Child And Family Center, the Los Angeles County Fire Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, among others.
Those needing transportation to the event may also take a free bus ride from three locations: Fahren Court/Manzanita Lane, Palomino Place/North Silver Saddle Circle and Canyon Springs Community School.
The “Many Families, One Community” resource fair will be held Feb. 24 at Golden Valley High School, located at 27051 Robert C. Lee Pkwy, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. To register for the free event click here (http://bit.ly/MFOCfamilyfair).
