DSA-West Langston Hughes Academy held a Grand Opening today for its enhanced Parent Resource Center

DSA-West Langston Hughes Academy today held a Grand Opening for its newly-enhanced Parent Resource Center.

The room, which is equipped with an interactive white board, computers, resources for parents and children, academic toolkits and more, has been relocated to a larger space adjacent to the school’s main office to accommodate more parents attending workshops. The site is designed to serve parents whose children attend a number of schools in the northwest corner of the school district.

The Parent Resource Center is also a new Gleaners Community Food Bank distribution site, and the center hosted its first food distribution event.

The Center is located at DSA-West Langston Hughes Academy, 19501 Berg Road. The event included a  Budgeting Workshop, Love and Logic Workshop, Focus Group, Fun Science Art and Craft Activity and food distribution for those who pre-registered.
