ESL Night at Shuford Elementary: A Piece of Cake!

ESLOn Thursday, October 9th, Shuford Elementary School’s English as a Second Language (ESL) families were treated to cake and ice cream on the school’s patio at their annual ESL night. Students and families also met in Shuford’s media center as the Media Coordinator, Mrs. Hopper, introduced a former Newton-Conover Middle School student, Linda Santellan, as the guest reader for their bi-lingual story time.

Students took home a free Scholastic book and colored bookmarks, while parents were introduced to the importance of reading in one’s home language, as well as reading as a family to boost comprehension in reading and other subject areas. The Shuford Family also welcomed back former students of Shuford’s ESL department, who came along to help serve and share in the fun!
