ESL Literacy Event at Irwin Elementary

Our K-7 ESL teachers hosted our first ESL literacy event called, Fall into Reading at Irwin School on October 18th. Ruth Chang, Supervisor of World Languages/ESL/Bilingual Education and her ESL team welcomed over 120 English language learners and their families to engage in literacy building activities. Our community leaders from the East Brunswick Public Library came, too. In addition, our Grade 8-12 team welcomed about 20 students and parents in order to begin the college application process. Finally, we had our first Parent Advisory Committee to listen to the needs of our immigrant population.
