A UNIVERSAL SUCCESS!

Hundreds of families attended this year’s EL Family Night, a mix of fun, food, music, and helpful information for families about our robust Department of English Learners. A tip of the hat to the Maintenance Department for setting up the outdoor space at the Parlin School and to EL Director Brittany Hay and all faculty and staff who organized and staffed the event. 

Clockwise from the top: from left: EPS teachers Katie Kukova (Lafayette), Melissa Browne (Webster), Chris Coughlin (EHS), and EPS K-8 STEM Director Rupi Kaur; Maintenance Director Steve Bond, Parlin School Principal Dennis Lynch, and Assistant Principal James Murphy; and Everett High School (EHS) Re-Engagement Specialist Sara Paiva and EHS EL Department Head Chelsea McNiff skilfully handle the popcorn maker.
