The Moon Area School District English as a Second Language (ESL) Department had the opportunity to participate in a program at the start of the year with the Latino Community Center (LCC).
ESL and LCC partnered to hand-deliver backpacks filled with school supplies to Latino and ESL families in the District.
The LCC provided the backpacks and ESL teachers Debby Kailer and Nichole Rojas delivered them along with the Director of the Latino Community Center, Rosamaria Cristello. LCC also left the District with several extra backpacks that we have had the opportunity to deliver as new ESL students register.
"It's been such a great opportunity to meet these families who are new to Moon Area and to welcome them with school supplies for their children," said Nichole Rojas. "We are so grateful to be able to partner with the Latino Community Center and look forward to continuing to meet the needs of families in our district," she said.
Over 25 backpacks have been delivered so far!
