English Language Learner (ELL) Newsletter

Hello and Happy Spring! Congratulations to your child for completing the ACCESS for ELLs English proficiency test. Each child worked hard to complete the test and I am proud of each student. We should receive the students’ scores by the end of the year. I have enjoyed working with each student this year and look forward to finishing out the year well. The Standards of Learning (SOLs) tests are coming up beginning on April 30th for third through twelfth grade students. Each student is continuing to study and work hard to prepare for the tests. While these tests can be overwhelming for students, please continue to encourage your child to not only study, but to relax and do their best. Thank you for your continued support!
