On the first three days of summer vacation, 20 Dual Language and ENL teachers headed back to school at Oakwood Primary Center, learning ways to engage and support their emergent bilingual students as they develop literacy in two languages.  Using Title III Funds, the district provided three full days of professional development with Enid Martinez, our outstanding K-2 balanced literacy consultant. We would like to thank or dedicated teachers who volunteered to attend and the South Huntington Teacher Center that provided lunch for the participants.
