Strong Families & Health Fair

September 25th was a very busy day on the Lamar campus.  The first hour of the day hosted many of our dads for the Strong Father’s/Strong Families event.  Fathers were invited to come and join their children in the classrooms.  Mothers and grandparents were welcome to attend as well. The morning started in the school cafeteria where Mrs. Martinez, principal, and counselors, Mrs. Aguilar and Mr. Gutierrez, greeted visiting family members.  When the bell rang to start the instructional day, parents went to the classrooms. Families enjoyed activities together until 9:00.


In the afternoon, during parent-teacher conferences, Lamar hosted a Health Fair in the cafeteria. There were many tables for health screenings and information on a variety of topics.  Thank you to our Coach Edgar Murillo for being the coordinator for the fair. 


Some of the Health Fair participants were:

San Vicente, Family Health Center

Las Palmas & Del Sol Healthcare


University Medical Center of El Paso

Project VIDA Health Center


Thank you to all the healthcare participants for sharing your time and information.
