Coming Together to Create Success

BIlingualweb.png
More than 130 people attended the district’s Bilingual Nights, an event that brings the community together and offers support to Spanish-speaking families to make them feel more comfortable being part of their children’s school lives.
 
The two-night event was organized and moderated by teaching assistant Cyndy Ergen, who translates documents into Spanish for the school district and communicates with Spanish-speaking families on behalf of the schools. Held at Bayville Primary School on March 13 and at Locust Valley Intermediate School on March 14, this year’s turnout was far greater than those held in the past four years.
 
“As word gets out about how helpful these programs are, more Spanish-speaking families want to attend,” Ms. Ergen said. She explained that the information offered helps parents understand the support available in the schools for them and for their children. “We explain how to use the website and how to translate the website into Spanish, who to call with various questions and who is in charge of different departments.”
 
Administrators representing areas such as special education, curriculum and health education spoke to the attendees, with Ms. Ergen translating their presentations into Spanish as they spoke.
 
Representatives from the local libraries provided information on their services, and various businesses donated items such as bags, reusable water bottles, toothbrushes and keychains.
 
“These presentations prove that bringing the community together is beneficial for everyone,” Ms. Ergen said. “The families are very thankful that we want to help them become more involved in their children’s education.”

As Henry Ford once said about teamwork, “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.”
