Making the choice on where to send a child to school can be a daunting and stressful task for families. To make this decision a little easier, the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) will be hosting the inaugural First Choice Festival January 14, 2014 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the PUSD Education Center, 351 South Hudson Avenue (Corner of Hudson Avenue and Del Mar Boulevard), in Pasadena. The First Choice Festival will be a one stop shop for parents and the community to meet and speak to representatives from every PUSD school. Whether families are considering a PUSD signature program school or simply want to learn more about the campus down the block, this festival is an opportunity to find the best educational fit for each individual family.
“I would like to invite residents of Altadena, Pasadena and Sierra Madre to the festival to learn more about their public schools and the exciting programs that are being offered,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “The First Choice Festival will showcase the multitude of educational options in PUSD, including programs that prepare students with global and enduring skills for the 21st century.”
