will be the guest speaker for the McAllen Independent School District's Family Engagement Conference, Saturday, January 23, 2010 at McAllen High School at 2021 La Vista, McAllen, Texas.
The Parental Involvement Program begins at 8:15 a.m. Congressman Hinojosa is scheduled to speak at 9:00 a.m. The focus of the program is to stress the importance of parental involvement in the scholastic activities of their children. When parents are involved, their children are more likely to succeed in school.

"Ensuring that all of our children succeed is a task that involves everyone in the community, particularly parents and families. When a parent becomes involved in their children's school work it provides the child with not only guidance but it instills a sense of hard work and responsibility and it encourages the student to do his or her very best", said Hinojosa.

Also on Saturday, January 23, 2010, Congressman Hinojosa will attend the Youth Advisory Committee's Literacy Day at the Delta Mercado in Edcouch. The event is sponsored by the Edcouch-Elsa Gear Up Program and is open to the public from 4:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m. Children and their parents will be able to enjoy live music, theatre performances, food and refreshments and free books will be given to the children.
