HEBER — About 200 parents, and as many children, converged on the Heber School campus Thursday to attend the school's inaugural parent fair.
Parents could attend up to four of the 12 sessions available, presented in both English and Spanish.
Free child care was provided for parents and a free dinner was served.
"It wouldn't have worked if we hadn't had volunteers," said Deborah Harrold, coordinator of Imperial Valley Regional Occupational Program, the organizer of the program.
Harrold praised the efforts of teachers, who offered presentations and volunteered to provide child care.
A popular presentation was a play presented by Elena Maciel's second-graders, who were raising awareness for the Heber Greenhouse Project.
"We are trying to drum up support for the Greenhouse Project," said Harrold. "Last night showed parents that there is going to be a project."
Harrold explained the students would use the greenhouse to grow different plants to learn about science, proper nutrition and even math.
