FALLBROOK — Fallbrook Union Elementary School District (FUESD) will be honored in the 28th annual Golden Bell Awards program of the California School Boards Association (CSBA). The award was won in the Early Childhood Education category for the Parents as Teachers Program, under the direction of Stacey Larson-Everson, Director of Special Projects.

The highly respected Golden Bell Awards will be presented at a special ceremony during CSBA’s Awards Luncheon at the San Diego Marriot Hotel & Marina on Saturday, December 1, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. The event is held in conjunction with the California School Board Association’s Annual Education Conference.

The Parents as Teachers Program has been providing services to Fallbrook families with children under the age of 5 for more than 15 years. The program currently serves more than 500 families weekly.

The program is focused on the healthy development of the “whole child” so that all children in the community may enter school ready to learn. Services include an extensive list of daily parent-child activities such as Music and Movement and Outdoor Exploration, as well as weekly parent education classes on topics ranging from discipline to healthy snacks.

Parents as Teachers services are offered at the newly constructed Mike Choate Center for Early Childhood Education, located at 407 South Mission Road. Further information can be obtained by calling (760)-731-4110.

The Golden Bell Awards program promotes excellence in education by recognizing outstanding programs in school districts and county offices of education throughout California. The awards reflect the depth and breadth of the education programs necessary to address students’ changing needs. The goal of this program is to contribute to the development and evaluation of curriculum, instruction and support services.

CSBA is a nonprofit association representing more than 1,000 K-12 school districts and county offices of education in California.
