We look forward to working with the Hoover School community for our virtual classes. I have attached the flier with the information for the classes.
Parent engagement during distance learning is more important than ever and we would like to help as many families through this challenging time, so I ask that you please share this opportunity with your teachers so they can recommend families that would benefit from these workshops. To make it easier, I have included a write-up you can share with your staff about the class. Please let me know if you have any questions.

We have held virtual classes since March and the participants are grateful for the support they receive with their children's education and critical resources related to COVID-19. They also benefit from the social support aspect of belonging to a community during a time where there is limited social interactions. Here are some comments from some of the participants:
“It is a group of great support for the entire community, since they keep us informed about all the resources available for our children to reach their goals. And in these difficult times of COVID 19, they have been of great support to the community, as they guide us and inform us. All the tools they provide help us stay strong for our children during these very difficult times.”
“[My favorite part] was being with my children- we dance, we sing ,we draw, we paint and we read. My daughter was practicing math. We did a lot of things, but more than anything we learned to be united.”
“They kept us informed on how to prevent the spread of COVID 19, supported us with information about community resources, and offered many academic tools for home learning with our children.”
“An excellent experience. Familias Unidas taught me to continue reading with my daughter. It taught me not to stop our reading despite being tired from work because I have the motivation that one day my daughter can be a professional [career]. Thank you very much for the opportunity and this experience.”
