How can I encourage ELL parent involvement in the classroom and the school?

I do a Culture Day- where students present, showcase their own culture or another. Usually on iMovies , poster boards, artifacts. At the end we enjoy foods from their culture that parents prepared . ELL parents are proud of their food and items and this is usually a big hit.

This may be an easy one but make sure communication from the school and teacher is accessible to the parents. This includes all flyers and mailers be in their home language, interpreters are available, translation services, etc.

Allow them to be involved from home if that’s their comfort level. I got frustrated for years thinking my ELL parents didn’t care. It took a very special parent to explain to me how hard it was for her to speak in front of children, feeling judged and that she wasn’t as smart as an elementary schooler for me to understand involvement has many faces❤️

Any parents who are still on the safe side with Covid? We have a 1 year old and being safe and staying mostly home is really getting to me.

Especially now mask mandates are being lifted feeling like we can’t go anywhere without risking our kid.
