Principle of Zavala to Speak in Explorer’s Sunday School Class

zavala

  Sean Fox, the principal of Zavala Elementary School, will speak to the Explorers Sunday School class on Oct. 6 on things being done to heighten the learning experience for a largely underprivileged student body.
   Fox, now going on his fifth year as the East Austin school principal, is encouraged that a departure from “teaching to the test” seems to be working. He will discuss how the students’ reading scores jumped 14 percent this past year.
   UUMC has been involved with Zavala for years, and is seeking to increase its interaction with and help for the school, which sits between two low-income housing projects.
   Fox will discuss  ideas for more ways that UUMC and its members can be involved with Zavala and its students, plus other topics. All are welcome to join at 9:45 on the 3rd floor of UUMC.
