Students and families enrolled in the K-12 ENL Program in the East Rockaway School District attended a special ENL Parent Academy on Oct. 10. The evening began with an introduction of the ENL staff and a welcome from Superintendent of Schools Lisa Ruiz.

With the help of bi-lingual student volunteers, families learned all about the ENL program’s offerings, opportunities that are available at all three schools, and useful apps and programs. During small breakout sessions, families worked with faculty and students to log on to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal and practiced with the Google Translate App.

The evening culminated with a special dinner, which provided students, families and staff the opportunity to informally chat and mingle.
