Welcome to the 2017-2018 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.


In addition, students will also follow the EHT English Language Collaborative/English Curriculum.


Please be advised that your child will be bringing home a letter for you to review early next week.  The letter will contain your child's current English Language Proficiency score, ACCESS assessement score and breakdown, a student information form to be filled out and returned, an Atlantic County Library sign up form, and a technology permission form for use of quizlet.



Thank you!


Bruce Hirschlein
