    How do we benefit from ELAC?
    In order to receive benefits from ELAC, it is very important for parents of students in the EL program to actively participate, remain informed about school activities, and attend meetings.
    Parent involvement will not only support students academically, but it will also help to build self-esteem of our students and encourage students to become successful members of society.
    Being a member of ELAC provides parents with the opportunity to become familiar with the academic programs of the school, and allows parents to have a voice in the development of the programs that are offered by the school.

    ¿Cómo nos beneficiamos de ELAC?
    Para recibir los beneficios de ELAC, es muy importante que los padres de los estudiantes en el programa aprendices de inglés participen activamente, se mantengan informados sobre las actividades escolares y asistan a las reuniones.
    La participación de los padres no solo apoyará a los estudiantes académicamente, sino que también ayudará a desarrollar la autoestima de nuestros estudiantes y alentará a los estudiantes a convertirse en miembros exitosos de la sociedad.
    Ser miembro de ELAC les brinda a los padres la oportunidad de familiarizarse con los programas académicos de la escuela y les permite tener una voz en el desarrollo de los programas que ofrece la escuela.
