Nov. 28, 2023--  The district's ESL (English as a second language) program hosted a fall festival Nov. 16 at Intermediate North.

The purpose of the night is to provide an opportunity for ESL families to learn about school happenings, get information and resources from community partners like Community Medical Center/RWJ Barnabas Health, and celebrate the season by participating in activities that are run by ESL teachers.

Some of those activities included selecting books donated by Book Smiles (right), leaf rubbing that was added to the ESL Family Tree, exploring the five senses of fall, coloring and guess-the-number contests, a photo booth, and a photo-frame-making station.

"It's such a busy time of year, but it's so important for us to connect with our families, keep the lines of communication open, and of course, celebrate the season," said ESL Department Coordinator Sara McNerny.
