Welcome English Language Learners (ELL) and Families! 
    We work with students from all over the world as well as with students born in this country, who speak other languages at home.   We celebrate the linguistic and cultural diversity here at Maria Hastings School!  It is our goal to help all students feel comfortable and successful in the classroom by supporting their English language acquisition.  We also look forward to working together with families and learning from each other. 
    At Hastings, the ELL teachers work with students throughout the day across subject areas to develop academic language in English language arts, science, social studies, and math. The focus of our program is to teach skills in the four language domains: reading, writing, speaking and listening.
    We host Parent Coffees throughout the school year.  We would love for you to join us!
    If we can support you in any way please do not hesitate to contact us.
