Three Village Central School District English as a New Language Department recently hosted two programs to bridge learning opportunities for students. 

A “Welcome Breakfast” was held for ENL elementary students at W.S. Mount Elementary School. The program allowed students from several new families in the district this school year to meet with other students who may speak their native language, to provide comfort and a sense of home in their new surroundings. 

Additionally, Ward Melville High School recently welcomed a group of students from Italy during a meet and greet breakfast and then were invited to shadow several Ward Melville students as they attended classes. In the afternoon, the group gathered back together to share their thoughts about the day and compare experiences. The following day, the students accompanied the visitors to a workshop on migration at Stony Brook University.
