On Saturday, March 4, 2017, the Inaugural Parent Summit at Columbia Middle School took place, the AESD Parent Summit was an exciting one-day event designed to provide parents with the tools on how to use community resources efficiently. Parents were able to choose three 45-minute workshops that will allow them to increase parent/family and community engagement, increase awareness and proficiency around culture, and promote and foster student achievement.
Workshops included topics on how to prepare your child for college, anti-bullying, financial literacy, healthy lifestyles, drug prevention and awareness, mindfulness for parents, and steps to U.S. citizenship.
The keynote speaker was Dr. Louie Rodriguez of UC Riverside who gave a speech on the importance of excellence in education and the importance of role models in our community.
This event would not have been such a success without the help of our school board, superintendent, and especially our site administrators. With the positive response received from the community and through the participation from various agencies from the City of Adelanto and San Bernardino County, the Adelanto Elementary School District looks forward to making the Parent Summit an annual event.
