Happy Summer!

‘ENL’ returns in the fall of 2015

The Spring 2015 term ended June 6th. We thank the students, parents, invited guests from the community, and all of the volunteers who worked with us to make the spring term possible. Many thanks as well to the entire ENL team for their dedication and commitment. It has been a successful year for the ENL students, filled with academic achievement and opportunities to learn about Latino tradition and culture.

Dates for the next term, Fall 2015:

August 23: Registration on for language and reading evaluations (we will send you the link)

September 12, 19, and 26: Mandatory language and reading evaluations for all students, both new and returning.  

October 10: First day of class

You can reach us by email (links to the left) to put your child on the list of new students for the fall. We will send you the link to register for a language and reading level evaluation.

Please take 15 to 30 minutes each day to read in Spanish with your children. If they are old enough, have them read aloud in Spanish. You will see a definite difference in September.

We wish everyone a happy, safe summer filled with reading.
