Input sought at parent rallies June 23 and 24


Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch

Marshalltown Schools are hosting two nights of parent rallies featuring a world famous advocate for parents having a voice in how their children are educated.

Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch will moderate the rallies on June 23 and 24 in both English and Spanish. Both will be held from 5:30 – 8 p.m. in the Marshalltown High School Media Center. Light refreshments will be served both nights and the rallies are free and open to the public, with childcare available.

The first night is titled “Speaking up for the Sake of our Children,” while the second night is titled “Working Together for the Sake of the Children.”

The goal of these programs is for families and school leaders to learn how to better work together to increase the likelihood of student success in the Marshalltown Community School District. Input from all parents is very important to Marshalltown Schools.

Throughout her career, Consuelo has shared her personal knowledge on becoming an effective leader in today’s global marketplace with hundreds of schools, colleges, universities, corporations, and government institutions both in the U.S. and abroad.

Born and raised along the border in a small barrio in Laredo, Texas, Consuelo is all too familiar with the challenges of poverty, discrimination and illiteracy. Although she grew up without material wealth, Consuelo was taught by her immigrant parents to be rich in culture, tradition, values and faith.
