Dear parents and guardians:
Welcome back to school!
Your child will be attending my ELL (English Language Learning) class daily. I will be working closely with your child’s teachers to support instruction in the regular classroom during your child's language arts period. During that time, we will focus on developing skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. My job is to be provide scaffolding, differentiation and supports to your child and to his/her classroom teacher in order to make learning accessible. This differentiation will be determined based on each child's ELP (English Language Proficiency Level) as determined by the WIDA Model or ACCESS for ELLs exam. I am available to you and your child on an emotional as well as an academic level.
I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the school year at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at: 609-737-4006 (ext. 1280). I am looking forward to a productive and exciting year with your child(ren).
Ms. Susan Horowitz
