Parent Bulletin – April 2019


Hi Parents!

     Happy Spring!  I am glad that some of you were able to attend our EL Parent Hour on March 7th!  It was great to learn more about you, hear what kinds of things you would like to do during our EL Coffee Hours,  and how you would like to use our Lokahi Lounge!  If you were not able to attend our Parent Hour, I would still like your input on the EL Coffee Hours and the Lokahi Lounge.  Your voice is important!


EL Lokahi Lounge  (Transition Center) and EL Coffee Hours Feedback

Your input is valuable!  Besides being a gathering place for you and your children to work and connect with other EL families, we will also be having our monthly EL Coffee Hours.  Please share your feedback on the survey attached to this bulletin. I look forward to hearing from you!

The Cambridge English website has many activities, songs, and lessons for your child to learn and practice English.  Here is the link below:
