We have been implementing a mentoring program for ELL Newcomers for the second year this year, and this week we held our first newcomer gathering and community meeting.  Students and parents alike were able to network with one another, participate in fun activities and to learn about important school events that they would need to know about and may have otherwise missed.  One of the best parts of this mentoring is the willingness and interest on behalf of staff and parents, and the willingness of our local education foundation to support such a project.  We had a parent speak about how the mentoring helped her children last year…that perspective is one that continues to reaffirm the work that we are doing! Great things continuing to happen at Fiske! #fiskeschool #ELL #newcomer #diversity #mentoring @fiskeschool
