    Dear Eighth Grade Families,

      The ENL teacher has put together this packet for your child who receives ENL services, to help with learning in the event our school is closed. This will help with continuing to learn from home as well as with language development. In addition to the packet please continue to encourage your child to read books at home and discuss the books with your child. The packet will also include some writing prompts to help the students continue to practice their writing skills. The goal is to keep the students engaged in learning, connected to others, and practice speaking, reading , and writing the language.

      In addition, some helpful websites include Bookflix, Brainpopjr, and National geographic kids. Please feel free to contact me if you need any further advice and support.
