Building Relationships Through Bilingual Nights

The community came together as more than 125 parents attended the district’s bilingual event, held over two nights for Spanish-speaking families from all of the LVCSD schools.

Organized and facilitated by Cyndy Ergen, a teaching assistant at Locust Valley Intermediate School, the event provided parents with helpful information to ensure that their children succeed in school. Ms. Ergen, who translates many district documents into Spanish for non-English-speaking families, shared the district calendar, important phone numbers and many helpful tips that would not only benefit students, but help parents and guardians feel more comfortable being part of the LVCSD community.  

Several district administrators and building faculty members were introduced, shared information about their departments and made the attendees feel comfortable by speaking in their native language and reminding them that the district will assist them in any way possible.

Ms. Ergen has been running this event for five years and said the Spanish-speaking community is appreciative that the information shared allows them to become more involved in the education of their children.

“Many of these families want to be more involved but don’t know how,” Ms. Ergen said. “By showing them where to find information, how to view the website in their own language and who to contact for various topics, they now feel more comfortable.”

Interim Superintendent of Schools, Thomas P. Dolan, Ed.D., said bilingual nights are important events that helps build bridges to connect all facets of the community. “When we work to make the entire community feel welcome, it benefits all of our students,” he said.

Ms. Ergen wishes to thank the school staff members and representatives from outside organizations that assisted in making the bilingual nights a success.

Locust Valley Intermediate School third graders participated in Flashlight Friday as the culmination of a reading unit of study. Students wore their pajamas, found a comfy spot in the classroom and read a book with a flashlight. With their reading partners, the children practiced the strategies they have been learning in class. Each pair of readers held a book talk on their chosen book and topic, sharing what they learned with their classmates.

Reading Brings Community Together

Reading was a family affair for fourth graders at Locust Valley Intermediate School when their parents and guardians took time out of their busy days to come to school for a community read-a-long. 

Sitting on blankets under trees or in the warmth of the sun, students and their families read a variety of books. District administrators and teachers read to students whose families could not attend. 

Fourth grade teachers organized the event to help highlight to students not only the importance of reading, but also that reading can be a wonderful way to bring people together.
