Deming Public Schools has launched a new program aimed at teaching parents Spanish or English.
The Deming Headlights reports that the new 12-week program seeks to teach parents using a series of colorful, bilingual books that they can read to their children.
Officials say parents discuss the readings and do projects to build upon the lessons they have learned. Projects include writing letters and building photo albums.
Classes for the Latino Family Literacy project at Bell Elementary School are free.
