Hundreds attend Aldine ISD’s Festival de Primavera

Families spoke with school representatives and staff members from 15 different departments to learn more about the district, School Choice options, and other programs and services.

Families learn about AISD in Spanish language

Aldine ISD hosted its inaugural ‘FESTIVAL DE PRIMAVERA’ on Saturday, April 30, at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center. The three-hour event was an opportunity for Spanish-speaking families to learn all things Aldine without a language barrier. The district staff held the event entirely in Spanish.

Several invited speakers also chatted with families at the festival. Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney welcomed families and shared a little about her story and what she hoped families would take away from the festival. She delivered her speech in Spanish to a crowd of families attending the festival as well as student volunteers and community partners. Families also heard from Dr. José Luis Zelaya, whose message on the power of education has been broadcast worldwide via television, radio, and newspapers, and author Jasminne Mendez, an award-winning author, poet, and playwright.

The district targeted the Spanish-speaking community, the largest demographic in Aldine ISD, to ensure key messages and information were reaching families and students.
