In the unlikely event you did not know, please be informed that the EL Office, in partnership with Alignment Nashville, is starting a very exciting program for our families from August 17 through December 7, 2016.

LEAF (Linking, Empowering, and Advancing Families) Community Nights are weekly opportunities for MNPS immigrant and refugee families to come for linguistic, academic, and personal development.  

LEAF Community Nights will be held every Wednesday from 6-8pm at Wright Middle Prep.  In this free program, school-age children will receive literacy instruction, using culturally responsive tools and strategies while adults will receive an hour and a half of English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, with an additional half hour of enrichment from community partners.
