Family night at Vallejo school builds relationships – Times Herald

By Irma Widjojo

It was called “Spring Family Night,” but truly it was a community night at a Vallejo elementary school.

About 100 families of Lincoln Elementary School students spent a couple of hours at the school Tuesday afternoon for some information, resources and entertainment.

“Not a lot of the families, especially in downtown area, are aware of what’s going on in school,” said Angel Banks, the school’s academic support provider. “A lot of the families are just trying to make it, … and they may not be aware of the resources that are available for them.”

The school organizes two family nights each school year — fall and spring — as part of its effort as a full-service community school in Vallejo.

“We want to be able to meet the family’s basic needs, recognizing that meeting those needs directly correlates with the students’ achievement in school,” Banks said.
