English Learners

ELAC Celebration Dinner

On Wednesday, May 22nd, Birch Lane’s multilingual community gathered for an end-of-year dinner and to celebrate our English Language Learners. 100 students and families members looked on as we recognized eleven students who were reclassified as fluent in English this year, a big accomplishment! A group of students welcomed the crowd in their native languages, with several dressing in traditional clothing for the event. We all marveled at the fact that Birch families and staff speak over 40 different languages! It was a wonderful evening.

Welcome to the webpage for Birch Lane's English Learner Program! We're glad you're here.

We serve over 100 students at Birch Lane whose families speak more than one language at home. Some students receive daily English Language Development (ELD) support in the Language Lab, while others receive support primarily in their regular classroom. We are located on the southeast corner of the campus, in Room 34.
