With the largest population of English Learners in the district and over twenty-six languages spoken on campus, Mill Creek Elementary School saw the need to build a BRIDGE for their EL students. Building Awareness and Understanding with Faculty and Staff, the school procured interpreters and traveled to homes to assist EL families with online registration. Additionally, EL teachers guided faculty to form learning communities centered on the needs of EL students. The platform Ellevations was utilized to access student profiles, interpret data and find resources and tools for EL lessons. Reflecting on Needs and Data to Determine Instructon, EL teachers built trusting relationships with classroom teachers and collaborated weekly on the growth of each child. Through Ellevations, student growth was tracked by subject and standard. EL teachers met with classroom teachers quarterly and discussed student needs, celebrated successes, and planned for areas of growth. Mill Creek Integrated Culture with an International Night where families shared their culture with food, language, traditions, and celebration. Faculty and staff Developed Relationships by travelling to neighborhoods during the summer of 2018 for Read Around the Block. Students were given snacks and chose a book to read for the summer.

Finally, Mill Creek Embraced the EL Population as faculty attended extracurricular events of students.
