My staff have been working hard with our ELL teachers to support our “Newcomers”, who are students that come to our school and do not speak English.  I am very proud of the work that staff have done to make sure that our Newcomers have people to connect with and build language.  Staff across the school work with students and support them by doing activities with them and speaking to them in English.  Additionally, the teachers in our ELL program have worked to build the program so that students are also getting involved in peer mentoring as well.  Such a great way to foster support of students, which is always our focus!  Thank you Fiske staff and students for your great work and making ALL students feel welcome!  #fiskeschool #ELL #newcomers #English #diversity #support
