Bilingual Family Outreach Liaisons

Dear Families,

We would like to take this opportunity to let you know of an exciting new initiative in the Weston Public Schools. As part of our Title III grant, we have been able to hire four Bilingual Family Outreach Liaisons for our largest language groups here in Weston: Mandarin, Korean, and Spanish. These liaisons provide families with district-wide and school-specific information while simultaneously facilitating the exchange of information to better meet the needs of all families and students.  Below is a list of the liaisons, their contact information, their role in the district, their respective language, and the school/s they will oversee:

Liaison Contact Information Other

District Role

Language School(s) of Responsibility
Enid De Castro Decastroe@weston.org High School Guidance Administrative Assistant Spanish Entire district
Jiyoung Park Parkj@weston.org Speech Language Pathologist at Country and Woodland Korean Entire district
Ma Ya Tao Taom@weston.org High School Mandarin teacher Mandarin Woodland, Country, and Field Schools
Te Lai (Light) Lait@weston.org Middle School Mandarin teacher Mandarin Middle and High Schools

In the next week, the liaisons will be inviting language groups to a short meeting in early March as an opportunity for families to get to know each other and for the liaison to learn more about community needs. 

If you have any questions or if we can help support this process in any way, please let us know.

Sincerely,
Tamar Jeniski, MS/HS ELE Teacher
