For years I have lamented the lack of involvement in PTA activities of our Hispanic and other non-native parents and families. Now Hispanic students are a sizeable proportion of our school population. I would like to find ways to help them feel more comfortable coming to school and participating in events. We currently have a family liaison who speaks Spanish which is great, but I would like to do more. Last year we made a concerted effort to welcome Vietnamese families but it fell a little flat. I am wondering what other schools are doing on this front.
