Fairfax County Public Schools will be hosting its last ESOL Parent Meeting on November 13, 2012

(Tuesday) from 5:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Woodson High School in Fairfax.  Dinner and childcare are  provided, as well as interpreters for Arabic, Farsi, Korean, Mandarin, Spanish, Urdu, and Vietnamese.  Fairfax County Public Schools holds these meetings for parents to learn about ESOL services available to their children, the new elementary progress report, advanced academic offerings, preparing for college and career, and other services to support families.

The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia was present at the first two meetings.  The first meeting was held at Hayfield Secondary School in Alexandria on October 10 and the second was at Chantilly High School in Chantilly on October 22.  Parents were very interested in LCNV’s offerings and filled out forms to receive information about classes for next semester; they also showed interest in ongoing conversation classes.  LCNV will also be attending the Parent Meeting at Woodson.  A special thank you goes to volunteer Julia Zurkovsky who attended the Chantilly meeting on LCNV’s behalf and will be attending the Woodson meeting.
