 Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!

 
 Dear Parents,
 
This year in ELL your student(s) will be focussing on the following categories of English language acquisition.
  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Reading
  • Writing

We will spend time working on each category every day and will work to improve oral fluency as well as literacy through practice with...

  • Vocabulary development
  • Grammar practice
  • Essay writing
  • and Reading assignments.

 

Your student will require a pencil, notebook, and folder/binder.  They must come prepared with these materials every day to receive credit for the day.

   

 

 

   

 

 Dear Parents,

 

In the following days a letter will be coming home with your student.  It includes information about the ELL program as well as your student's ACCESS for ELL's assessment score from the 2019-19 school year.  The test score is yours to keep, but I would kindly ask that you sign and return the English copy of the letter for my records.
 
In addition to the letter, and as I am sure you are aware, Back to School Night at Fernwood Middle School is Monday September the 16th.  I hope to see you there.

 

Thank you!

 

Tom Hirschlein
