CHAMPAIGN -- Families were treated to a different kind of parent-teacher conference this weekend. Unit 4 hosted a barbecue at Garden Hills Elementary.

It gave parents a chance to meet several district leaders, principals and more. The superintendent says it allows them to have one-on-one interaction without being in an office setting.

She says informal meetings like this are a great way to get to know the community. It won't be the last family get together for the district. It holds barbecues like this about four times a year.
