MPAC Multilingual Celebrations of Learning

Multilingual Celebrations of Learning will happen once in the fall and another time in the Spring as an effort to Celebrate the Work of Our Multilingual Learners. We give families an opportunity to explore the learning targets of the quarter that their child worked towards as well as an update on their child’s progress towards language goals.
