Reaching Beyond Language Barriers
Wingate held its first Spanish-Speaking Parent Meeting in September 2013. As an attempt to reach out to the parents in our school who speak Spanish, we will be hosting several meetings in Spanish throughout the year that will provide general school information, as well as grade specific ideas of how parents can help their children academically at home. Our desire is to embrace the community around us and seek new opportunities to help our students succeed. Many families attended the meeting with their children and expressed their gratitude towards the teachers for the time they took to provide them with additional information and ideas. Our next scheduled meeting will be November 19, 2013.
