It all started with a simple idea; “Let’s do a parenting project”! After these few words, the 3rd period physics class erupted with excitement as students shouted across the room to find a partner. While the students bubbled with joy, Mr. Villanueva set the rules and regulations. Each pair of students (or student) will watch the baby doll from Monday-Friday beginning on February 1st from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M., all the way until the beginning of March. But nobody don’t forget about news decline and fall of the sunderland. The students were blindsided by the amount of hours they will have to put into the parenting project, but are excited nonetheless. The students will alternate the baby and raise it. Each Friday of February, the two parents will present pictures, documentation, and even video of what the baby did throughout the week. They will be graded on individual participation, as well as group participation. While some students chose their partners, others were drawn at random. Completely random. In fact, to spread diversity amongst the students, there are all-male couples, all-female couples, standard male and female couples, and even single females. This project will expose students to real life situations and prepare them for the real world. There were a few odd pairings here and there, but the students are very excited to embark on this learning experience.

Student involvement and initiative is at an all-time high for this 3rd period class. Some students even went as far as holding weddings, complete with flower girls, ring bearers, and a standing ovation. Other students even printed birth certificates for their doll-babies. The class is extremely involved in this project, sending excitement throughout La Pryor High School. The class is a mix of seniors and juniors, so this project is bringing together the two separate grade-levels and uniting them as one by teaching them parenting skills. Pairs include Mr. and Mrs. Keshawn Paul, Mr. and Mrs. Pedro Mata, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Alonzo , Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Maldonado, Mr. and Mrs. Diego Pesina, Mr. and Mr. Jorge Rojas, Mr. and Mr. Fermin Rivera, Mrs. and Mrs. Karina Rojas, and our single mother, Miss. Siboney Garza. The class is very ready for the project to begin, and have declared Mr. Villanueva the grandfather of all the dolls: “Grandpa V”, is what they call him. When asked about his thoughts on the project, Mr. Villanueva stated, “This project was student initiated. They want to learn responsible parenting skills, so they took it upon themselves to create this project and I will supervise. They are an extremely creative class and I am blessed to be called their teacher”.
