TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The 12th annual Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Child Development Conference was held at Truckee Elementary on May 3 and was a huge success.

Bilingual musician and educator Jose Luis-Orozco was the keynote presenter and provided lively, interactive workshops on the vital role of music to nurture early language skills for children. 175 parents and educators attended these workshops along with workshops and demos on nutrition and art.

The conference finale was Family Concert, where 70 children joined the adults for a multicultural sing and dance-along, ending with a giant, joyous circle of adults and children holding hands and dancing around the gym.

The conference, which originated with funding from First Five Nevada County, now has multiple sponsors and is held each year on the first Saturday in May. For more information call 530-582-2583.
