Park’s ELL (English language learner) program assists students whose primary home language is not English. Our ELL program gives these students supports they need to develop and improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in English. Through these supports English language learners gain confidence to take risks in their classroom and throughout the school community. Park’s ELL teacher Sue Krichman notices that confident students not only succeed in ELL class, but also in the greater community when they use their language skills. “Confident students are happy students! Our ELL program helps happy students grow!”
