As part of the district's Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP),
Robla School District hosts two Parent Empowerment dinners every school year as well as other activities and workshops at the school and district level throughout the school year.
These workshops, activities, and dinners allow parents to:
- Get motivated and become more involved in their child(ren)'s lives and academic future
- Experience and gain knowledge on other cultures
- Interact and network with parents and staff
All Parent Empowerment Dinners are held at Main Avenue Elementary and offer parents and children free dinner, live entertainment, a guest speaker, and free child care. At each dinner, topics are selected, which best address areas that parents and the district feel are important, these topics include:
- The Importance of Dreaming Big for your Child
- How to Set and Achieve Goals
- Activism, Protests, and the Power of Community Voice
- Empowering Parents to Empower Youth
We hope that. as a parent, you will be able to attend a future Parent Empowerment Dinner. For more information on the Parent Empowerment Dinners, please contact the district office.
Hispanic Heritage Month - Fall 2021
The first Parent Empowerment Dinner for the 2021-2022 school year was held on Tuesday October 5th, hosted by Robla School District and the Roberts Family Development Center. Guest speaker Virdiana Diaz, Ed.D. Associate Vice President, Student Strategic Support, California State University, Sacramento spoke about “The Importance of Education and Your Personal Walk.” She shared how all families can access higher learning for their children, her own journey as a person of color who faced many challenges in life, and she will share a message about things all parents can do even when their child is very young.
Live entertainment was provided by Mariachi Los Gallos, and amazing chicken sopes were prepared by the Robla School District Food Services Department. The Roberts Family Development Center provided child care for parents attending with children.
