We are hosting our last parent session for this academic year today at Bell Gardens High School! We truly want to thank all the parents in our community that attended, were engaged, and allowed us to show them a glimpse into our classroom. We are also appreciative to the Parent Services Department at Montebello Unified that helped us put these events together. These sessions have been a true partnership between the teachers at Montebello Unified School District and the Montebello Teachers Association. Our vision of bridging a connection from the classroom to the home has been the key to the success of this project. Our students achieve their potential when we collaborate as a community.
Today’s session is focused on academic vocabulary and online resources. Our recommended links are listed below:
