 Enrique's Journey chronicles a Honduran's child perilous odyssey in the search for his mother and the desperate struggles of a family torn apart, while yearning to unite and to heal deep wounds. There is a Spanish, Young Adult and Adult version of the book. First published as a series in the Los Angeles Times where it won a Pulitzer Prize, Enrique’s Journey was later expanded into a book which became a national best seller that is now required reading at hundreds of high schools and colleges across the country.

Author Sonia Nazario is an award-winning journalist whose stories have tackled some of this country’s most intractable problems and have earned her many prestigious journalism and humanitarian awards. She is a passionate and dynamic speaker on immigration, racial discrimination, U.S. foreign policy, hunger, addiction and other social issues. 

The Glenbard Parent Series/Spanish will also host a GPS Picnic on Aug. 23 at 6:00p.m. in the cafeteria at Glenbard East.  Julian Lazalde of the Latino Policy Forum will present a program in Spanish entitled Navigating the Educational System. Participants will gain knowledge about post -secondary options, how toaccess resources and how to effectively partner with educators for their child's success.

Following the picnic all are encouraged to join Pulitzer Prize winning author Sonia Nazario at 7:00pm in the East auditorium. Nazario will address the public in English in remarks about her best seller Enrique's Journey. Students and community members are invited to join with us when we welcome author Sonia Nazario to the GPS to Glenbard East on Aug 23 at 7:00pm. All GPS events are free and CPDU's are available.

Attention Kindergarten Parents

The Illinois State Department of Education (ISBE) has announced the state will obtain and report consistent measures of developmental readiness for all kindergarten students starting in the fall of 2017.  Beginning this school year, all K teachers in the district will complete the Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) on every student in their class. The "survey" consists of observations of students as they go about their daily routines of playing and schoolwork.  Children will engage in play-based learning -- without interruption in their education -- while teachers observe behaviors and interactions and collect work samples. 

KIDS measures kindergarten students’ development across four important learning domains — Approaches to Learning and Self-Regulation, Social and Emotional Development, Language and Literacy Development, and Math.  KIDS is validated, informed by research, and aligned with state learning standards. Families will receive more information about their child’s individual development during school curriculum nights, parent conferences and through district report card distribution. You can also read more information about KIDS at https://www.isbe.net/Pages/KIDS_Parents_Families.aspx
