A recently Bilingual Parents Night provided Palos East Elementary School English-language learner families with tools to support their children at home in their native languages.

About 30 parents in attendance at the Palos Heights event were provided reading and math strategies, a tour of the school and discussions about the benefits of bilingualism and how to navigate the school website.

Local businesses donated different cultural food including Arabic, Polish, Lithuanian, Russian, Mexican, Italian and Chinese appetizers.

Huntington and Sylvan learning centers, Pop’s Italian Beef & Sausage, Jimmy John’s and Nick’s Barbecue also contributed prizes.

Palos East teachers provided activities for children so parents were able to fully participate in the evening.
