ESL Express

By: ELL Department first Edition

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 year. I hope you had a wonderful summer with family and friends.


This is the first edition of the ESL Express! It will serve as a monthly newsletter to inform various ESL events and strategies to implement into the classroom for all learners.


This year there are eleven ELL teachers serving the EVSC. We are welcoming to the high school itinerant position. There are almost six hundred ELL students in the district.
