Restorative Practices Parent Information Night

As promised, we will hold a parent informational night for restorative practices October 30 at 5:30 pm in the Carrillo Multipurpose Room. As I have mentioned in previous emails, our staff is committed to using restorative practices to build community and respond to harm at our school, and we would love if our message is reinforced at home. Our facilitator for the Parent Training session will be Cristina Parodi Araya who is a Parent/Family Liaison for the San Diego County Office of Education and a trainer of restorative practices. During our session, Christina will:


Give an introduction to the rationale
Share current research and data related to the program
Review training practices/language/behavior expectations that are currently being used by our staff members
Provide parents with a circle experience

Please mark your calendars for this important informational session.

Thank you,


Gary Pope, Principal
