Press Release: 11-14-2011
Waukegan Public Schools will launch its Parent/Guardian Educational Workshop series on Friday, November 18 with a seminar aimed at educating parents on the process for gaining permanent residency or citizenship in the United States.
The free workshop will be presented by representatives from the Father Gary Graf Center and Catholic Charities, who will explain how to become a permanent resident or a citizen. The workshop begins at 4 p.m. at the Waukegan Public Library, 128 North County Street.
The Citizenship workshop is the first of more than three dozen workshops planned by Waukegan Community Unit School District # 60, aimed at connecting parents and guardians with a multitude of community resources.
The workshop topics were determined based on a parental survey that asked parents and guardians what topics they would like to learn more about. Among the most popular topics were workshops centered on nutrition and healthy eating, affordable health insurance for children, computer classes for parents and stress management.
The workshops will be held periodically over the next several months, with various community organizations presenting on topics of expertise.
“The District is aiming to connect parents to community resources and organizations that provide the knowledge or resources that parents and guardians need to be successful,” said Mr. Tim Kirschner, Parent and Community Partnership Coordinator for District 60.
Future workshops are planned for the first two weeks of December. The topics of those workshops will be announced in the upcoming weeks at www.wps60.org.
