MENIFEE ---- Spanish-speaking parents with children in Menifee schools are getting free lessons in various topics as part of a program designed to help them with the basics of managing their homes and caring for their families.Dolores Marquez, a Sun City mother of three, said the classes help her do all she can for her family.
"I'm learning about things like how to buy healthier food by looking at labels for calories and salt content," said Marquez, one of the few parents in the class who is fluent in English. "You want to do things like buying food that's healthy for your family. You want to give your family the best."
Marquez said she has been to all of this year's series of parenting classes offered by the Menifee Union School District. Topics include money management, nutrition for families, and computer use and the Internet. The program, paid for with federal funds, is in its fourth year.Each two-hour long lesson is held at 8:30 a.m. every Thursday at Menifee Valley Middle School's English Language Department office, Room 105. English learners are not charged for the lessons.For information about the parenting classes, or English language classes, call (951) 244-6872.
