Commissioner Juan C. Zapata will visit Felix Varela Senior High School as part of Children First Education Initiative Program

Commissioner Juan C. Zapata will continue his Children First Initiative tomorrow, Thursday, May 30, 2013, at Felix Varela Senior High School, 15255 SW 96th St, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  As part of his initiative, Commissioner Zapata intends to bring attention to children’s scholastic achievements, as well as their emotional well-being and safety.

During his visit, Commissioner Zapata will tour the school; meet with school administrators, faculty and students on-site. Additionally, he will end his tour by visiting the students in government & economics classes. He will speak to the students and answer questions they may have.  

These programs have proven successful in many school districts. Inviting community leaders to shadow a principal is a concept designed to help participants understand the rewards and rigors of being a principal. They have resulted in appreciation and respect for schools, teachers, and principals, and they have built lasting public relations benefits.

For more information, please contact Commissioner Zapata’s office at 305-375-5511.
