8th Grade Intro to Course Selection – Thursday, January 30th @ 6pm
Every year the PTAs in Somerville have a chance to make funding requests to the superintendent and school board for anything from increased staffing to supplies. We’ve received suggestions from teachers and staff and will also be re-requesting items from last year. We would love input from families as well. If you have suggestions or would like to know more specifics about what we will be requesting at the upcoming meeting on February 10, please email HealeySchoolPTA@gmail.com Thank you!
The English Learner Parent Advisory Council (EL PAC) is a group of parents whose children are learning English in Somerville Public Schools. We work together to learn more about English learner programs in the schools and how we can better support our children’s learning. We also make suggestions to the district about how to improve.
We invite ALL parents to join us. Your voice and your opinions are very important!Meetings are twice a month on Fridays. Snacks are provided.
If you are interested, please provide your contact information and a current member of the EL PAC will reach out to you:
Name, phone, child’s school and your preferred language to firstname.lastname@example.org
