“We’re very excited to have the Family Expo back,” said Aaron Perales, the director of Arlington ISD’s parent and community engagement department (PACE). “We know how important it is for our families to have connections to available resources like this as they get ready for a busy summer. We’re very fortunate to have great community partners that support this event opportunity.”
The expo is hosted by PACE in partnership with the of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Xi Theta Omega Chapter and The Arlington Foundation for Excellence in Education.
It will feature vendors and workshops geared to help families get ready for this summer. There will also be workshops on everything from internet safety to money matters.
