Summer Resources for ELLs
It is a proven fact that if you use the language, you will not lose the language.
Please encourage you children to keep up their English skills. Have your children interact with as many English speaking people that they can this summer. They have all worked very hard to learn English this year and we want them to show off those skills. We have included a variety of programs for English help and activities that the students could go out to enjoy, have fun with and use their English skills. Many of these places offer summer camps, workshops or classes. This will enable your child to do something fun that they are interested in and also practice their English. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
