APS Welcome Center Hosts Parenting Workshop

The APS Welcome Center recently hosted a workshop for refugee and immigrant families to learn about parenting in the United States. Families representing 14 different cultural backgrounds gathered to acquire new and effective parenting skills that may differ from best practices in their homelands.

Senior Sargent Paul Poole tackled the legal aspects of parenting, while the Aurora Gang Reduction Impact Program A-GRIP (A-GRIP) highlighted the risks and signs of youth heading in the wrong direction. While parents and high school students attended the workshop, younger students engaged in arts activities provided by Downtown Aurora Visual Arts.

In APS, we believe diversity is our strength. We also believe families are our partners in education. We applaud the APS Welcome Center for their continued work in empowering parents and bridging cultural gaps.
