Willowbrook’s Padres Unidos (United Parents) group offers programming and resources for Spanish-speaking parents

On Sept. 15, Willowbrook welcomed about 25 parents/guardians during its first Padres Unidos meeting of the 2022-23 school year.

Through that group, Spanish-speaking parents/guardians increase their knowledge of the school system to help their children achieve at the highest level.

During the Sept. 15 meeting, attendees participated in an orientation to learn more about Willowbrook, as well as a training in PowerSchool (District 88’s student information system).

Future meeting topics will include information on accessing college and financial aid, as well as presentations by Dr. Ferney Ramírez, a respected psychologist and coordinator of bilingual parent-education programs.
