Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. Tom Biesiadny, Fairfax County Director of Transportation, will give us a brief update about the plan for returning needed public bus service to our neighborhood. Following Director Biesiadny’s update, we’ll have a panel presentation with a facilitated discussion by the FCPS School and Family Partnerships Office. The multicultural panel will feature panelists from several countries who immigrated here and have children who have attended FCPS schools. They will focus on a variety of topics, including cultural perspectives on child rearing, migration and acculturation experiences, education and school involvement differences, language, communication, and gender issues, as well as other topics that are raised from our group. Our intention is to increase our learning and understanding of cultural differences as we are all raising students together at CPES. The panel discussion will be presented in both English and Spanish and simultaneous interpretation will be available in both languages.  Additionally, an Arabic interpreter will also attend. Child care, with dinner included, will be provided.  Please click here to let us know the number of children you are bringing.
