East Rockaway’s English as a New Language department hosted a workshop for the English language learners in grades 9-12 on Feb. 2.

Osman Canales, director of Long Island Immigrant Student Advocates, led a powerful, interactive workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to educate and engage the district’s ENL and immigrant students. This was the first of a series of workshops that aim to empower the students to take action to strengthen and continue their education, as well as to become leaders in their school and community.
