Description

Connecting with Newly Arrived and Immigrant Families

Recent immigration enforcement policies and natural disasters have impacted children and families, and have also had consequences for their teachers, principals, counselors and fellow classmates. In this session, we will discuss strategies schools and communities are using to welcome newly arrived and immigrant families. We will also have the benefit of legal expertise to help us understand families' and schools' rights and responsibilities.

Guests: Joel Cruz, M.Th., Director of the Institute for the Hispanic Family

Kimberly Bobin, Family & Early Childhood Coordinator, Wethersfield Public Schools

Meghann E. LaFountain, Esq., LaFountain Immigration Law, LLC

Date: October 12, 8:30-10:30 a.m.

Location: New Britain Museum of American Art

Directions and Parking: Here



Please note: The session will be photographed and videotaped for posting online.



What: Friday CAFE is a morning discussion and networking series for people like you who work at the intersection of families and learning. Our monthly gatherings feature a short talk, fresh coffee and thought-provoking conversation.

Who: Our network members go by many different titles. Some work in schools, some in communities. Are you a parent liaison, partnership coordinator, home-school facilitator, family resource specialist, parent center director or parent leader? Then this network is for you.

Remember to set your alarm and we’ll see you in the morning!
