Pershing Elementary recently hosted a Family Dinner Night to honor the families who participate in the Home Works! program. Home Works! is a teacher home-visit program that partners teachers and families with the goal of improving academic and social success, as well as increased parental involvement.
Families were treated to a delicious spaghetti dinner and participated in activities related to the event's theme, We are Family. Each family was asked to write down what family means to them, and kids were able to present their different definitions of family to the entire audience.
At the end of the evening the was a raffle in which families could win gift bags and gift cards. Says Pershing parent Kristine Hendrix, "Good times!!"
