First Graduates from Mano a Mano Class

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009


Our new DSAOC Mano a Mano (Hand in Hand) Class recognized its first graduates in December.  The 10 week program, funded with support from the Children & Families Commission of Orange County, is focused on our Spanish speaking families.  Designed to enhance early literacy for children (3-6 years of age), while also helping the parents better understand the IEP process and improve their own language skills. 

CONGRATULATIONS to the graduates; and many THANKS to our Mano a Mano Team teachers: Monica Lucero, Yessica Gandara, Cristina Mamac, and Analiz Pulido.
