18 Sep CCSD’s FACES program launches Super Saturday workshops

One of the important objectives of Clark County School District’s (CCSD) Focus: 2024 strategic plan is to improve parent and community support, leveraging internal resources to help parents/guardians support student achievement and attendance.

To further that objective, CCSD’s Family and Community Engagement Services (FACES) program is launching Super Saturday workshops that will be held eight times during the 2019-20 academic school year. The goal is to engage a minimum of 800 families and students.

“Super Saturday is an opportunity for parents, children, and families to gain valuable strategies, educational resources, and other important information to support learning at home,” says Eva Melendrez of FACES. “These mini-conferences will be held in locations throughout the district and community.” 

FACES’ first Super Saturday is Sept. 21 and will be a Fossil Extravaganza at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas for the entire family. This event is being hosted in collaboration with Friends of Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, which is a nonprofit group that assists the museum.

This Super Saturday will include stations with hands-on activities exploring fossil formations under layers of sediment, viewing and touching real fossils and models, and families having the opportunity to make an “amber fossil craft.”

Through community partnerships such as this, families and students are given unique opportunities to explore new and exciting venues where learning comes to life. For many families, this may be their first visit to the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas. 

FACES invited families from all Title 1 schools and the FACES Family Engagement Centers located at Title 1 schools to attend this exciting and unique learning experience (at no cost to families).
