Learning Together: ELL Family Engagement Conferences

Learning Together: ELL Family Engagement Conferences

All ELL Students and Families are invited to join the new DOE initiative to increase engagement among families that speak languages other than English at home. The Learning Together series of Family Engagement conferences will offer workshops and activities for ELL students and families, delivered in the families’ native languages.

Conferences will include workshops on parent engagement, supporting learning at home, health and safety. Each conference will culminate in a family S.T.E.M. robotics activity, with instruction from multilingual NYC teachers. Some details follow below.

Participation is FREE, but registration is required. You can find out about how to register:
