In honor of Liberty’s rich cultural diversity, district will host its tenth annual orientation event for the schools’ English as a Second Language (ESL) families on Thursday, Aug. 25 from 6:15-8:30 p.m. in the Liberty Middle School cafeteria.
Parent Night was designed as a resource for English language learners to find out more about the opportunities available to their families. With that in mind, and with the goal to help every Liberty student reach his or her potential, the district introduced the program ten years ago.
The evening will provide students and parents with an opportunity to meet with their principals, teachers and other staff. Particular attention will be paid to supports available to help students meet educational expectations and about the school’s procedures and practices.
Additionally, community organizations will be available to provide translated information and resources that might be of use. To date, representatives from PRASAD, Hudson River Health Plan, Sullivan County Adult BOCES, Child Care Council, Literacy Volunteers, Liberty Public Library, migrant education, immigration law and more will be on hand to answer families’ questions.
