 ENL News and Updates



On Thursday, October 26th, the Deer Park ENL Department held its first annual K-5 Parent Fair. Parents from May Moore, John Quincy Adams, and John F. Kennedy were invited to learn more about the curriculum which their children are taught. A total of seven booths were set up for parents to receive information: K-2 Math, 3-5 Math, K-2 Reading, 3-5 Reading, K-5 Writing, ENL/NYSESLAT Information, and Technology Assistance. At each booth, parents received information regarding teacher expectations for students, taught content, and how to support their children at home. Additionally, the fair's Technology Assistance booth allowed parents to learn how to access the Parent Portal, translate district pages, and access the new Parent Teacher Conference Scheduler. ENL students came to play games which they could take home to help them learn. Overall, it was a wonderful night! Please visit our ENL Photo Gallery for pictures!
