OMS First ELL/Bilingual Family Night A Success!

What a fabulous event last week – our first ELL/Bilingual Family Night! An extensive thank you goes out to our Every Owl Counts Committee Chairs, Karen Joseph and Monika Tietz, who put this event together. Volunteers helped kids make crafts, read books, (and even shared a magic trick!), while parents heard from resources available to ESL families.

It couldn’t have been such a success without the participation and support of our OMS Admin, our OMS ELL teacher, Mrs. Wrobel, as well as the Arlington Heights Memorial Library (thank you, Amy Wiltse Duffey)! The AHML was there to share ESL resources, as well as sign up anyone – parent/child – for a library card on the spot!

Another shout out to our OMS Librarian, Mrs. Brown, who has worked with our Every Owl Counts committee to highlight books celebrating diversity that are on display in the library.
