It's April already! We are all enjoying the nice weather. We are also busy reading, talking, and writing as much as we can. Thanks so much for listening to your children read to you. Nightly practice is very important for their English development.
We are sad to be losing our Arabic bilingual aide, Rima Abdul-Samad. Her family is moving to sunny California! Her last day with the district will be May 5th.
This year,we have this staff: JoAnn Schmitt, ELL teacher, here at OSE daily; Irma Ueber, Spanish bilingual aide, here half day mornings, Monday-Friday; Katie Chen, Chinese bilingual aide, here Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons; Elena Golikov, Russian bilingual aide, here Wednesday afternoons; Rima Abdul-Samad, Arabic bilingual aide, here Tuesday and Thursday afternoons; and Ms. Ito, Japanese bilingual aide and Mrs. Myung, Korean bilingual aide, here as needed.
