From the Multilingual Learner's Office

Dear Norwich Public Schools,

Welcome to the December edition of the Multilingual Newsletter! It's hard to believe we are almost near the end of our first school semester! This month we have a series of holidays which are celebrated in many different cultures in unique ways! We aim for an inclusive experience where all of our students feel acknowledged and valued. We can do this by providing meaningful culturally relevant learning experiences in the classroom! Below are some ideas on how you can make this happen. Remember to reconnect with loved ones and practice self-care during the holiday season. This is a time to be thankful for our most valuable treasures... family and friends! As always, to all the teachers in the district, THANK YOU for all that you do!

Happy holidays! We hope you have an amazing winter break and a wonderful New Year!
