Brooklyn Schools hosts English Language Learners Camp

ELL camp

This summer, Brooklyn City Schools will be hosting an English Language Learners summer camp. ELL students have a poor rate of graduation nationwide because of their natural language barrier and reversion to their native language in the summertime. By providing a platform for ELL students to speak and study English in the summertime, it will prevent them from atrophy in the second language skill. The camp is structured so that students will spend their mornings in academic review of English, math, social studies, and science.  Then in the afternoons, students will participate in recreational activities such as quiet reading, swimming, watching movies, or art projects.  

This camp will serve as a pilot program with the camp eventually expanding to a regional capacity next summer. This camp is being funded totally by grants from the Cleveland Foundation and the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.  These grants were written and applied for by Brooklyn's own English Language Learner teacher, Mr. Len Piechowski. Mr. Piechowski and other Brooklyn staff members are contributing their time to this worthwhile camp this summer.
