ENL Parent Orientation will be Aug. 30

Dozens of Liberty schools’ English as New Language (ENL) students and their parents will join community members on Aug. 30 from 6:15-8:30 p.m. for ENL Parent Night, a welcome back event that takes place before the start of a new school year.

Parent Night was designed as a resource for English language learners to find out more about the opportunities available to their families. 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. ENL teachers and staff will be available to help families fill out the traditional start-of-the-school-year paperwork. The night will also feature a keynote speaker named Beverly Guity. Ms. Guity will share her experiences as an ENL learner.

Additionally, community organizations will be available to provide translated information and resources that might be of use. Representatives from PRASAD, Hudson River Health Plan, Sullivan County Adult BOCES, Child Care Council, Literacy Volunteers, Liberty Public Library and the Youth Economic Group were available to answer questions, provide insight and pass out translated materials.
