On May 11, Carolyn Payne of our Community Connection team joined Richardson High School’s Padres Unidos group to enjoy an afternoon of mindful painting and lunch at Cottonwood Park.
Padres Unidos is a support group for parents at Richardson High School who speak Spanish. The group meets once a week to discuss challenges their children face and how to help them achieve personal and academic success throughout their high school experience. Carolyn’s regular participation in this virtual group has helped her stay current on the issues her support group students are facing as well as show support for the parents.
Special thanks go to Anita Cepeda, school counselor at Richardson High School, for helping sustain this valuable partnership and program!
