The Long Beach Public Schools hosted an English as New Learners Family Night on Dec. 13. More than 140 parents of students from kindergarten through grade 12 came out to Long Beach Middle School, where the event was held, and attended workshops led by teachers. 

The night kicked off with ENL Coordinator Evelyn Daza welcoming the parents. Sessions, which were conducted by ENL teachers in bilingual formats, focused on topics such as the Wonder, Read and Play initiative, writing parents can do with kids, games that develop vocabulary, parent portal, rights and responsibilities and more. Community organizations were also present to hand out information on programs available for Long Beach residents. 

Transportation, food and babysitting were provided, and each of the approximate 30 children in attendance had the opportunity to take home books donated by the Book Fairies in Freeport and district staff members.
