Multilingual Family Outreach Liaisons

Dear Weston Community,

It is our pleasure to introduce to you Weston’s four liaisons for multilingual families. Our liaison’s main goal is to help families whose first language is Mandarin, Korean and Spanish, better connect with our schools. Our facilitators can help families with understanding district practices, learning about upcoming events, and finding the right people to communicate with should questions and concerns arise. Over the coming months we hope to establish regular communication and plan several events for our multilingual communities.
