Here is a start up pack to use in schools for students who are new to the country and the English Language. The cards are designed to be used as a non-verbal communication tool that will support students throughout the day.
Below are the bilingual glossaries for academic vocabulary in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. There are glossaries for English Language Arts, Literary Terms, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The glossaries were created for 3rd - 5th grade but may be useful for other grades. This resource is to support students, families, and staff!

As you know, earlier this week the president terminated the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) Program, which affects members of our local community. This message concerns instructions from the US Citizenship and Immigration Service about deadlines for DACA renewal filing. Please read closely if this is relevant to you or someone you know.
Per USCIS, if a current DACA recipient’s benefits expire after March 5, 2018 then they would have to have a renewal filed on or before today. After today through October 5, 2017, only DACA renewals where the requestor’s DACA expires on or before March 5, 2018 will be accepted and processed.

What the decision to end DACA means to our families (per Dept of Homeland Security):

Mr. C was a teacher for the English Learner Summer Program at Thurston Elementary this summer. Here is a video of his work with students from our community! Some students were from Logan Elementary!
Dear Logan Families,
In partnership with the City of Ann Arbor and the Ann Arbor Policy Department, the Logan staff has been reviewing our parking lot procedures before and after school. Please take a few minutes to review this brief video that outlines the correct procedures to follow when entering and exiting the parking lot. It also highlights a few changes that will go into effect beginning Wednesday, November 2. The Ann Arbor Police Department will be in the area enforcing these new rules.
Thank you in advance for your efforts to make our arrival and dismissal safe for all of our children.
Logan does not celebrate Halloween with any school-wide activities. Individual classrooms have small parties, often referred to as fall festivals. Please refer to your child’s teacher for further information. Although we hope all families enjoy the creativity associated with this holiday, we also know that the anticipation of “dressing up and role playing” at school can be a distraction all day long. To this end students do not wear costumes to class celebrations. We do encourage everyone to wear their costumes to Beats and Treats on October 28. We know that our children will enjoy the small classroom celebrations at the end of an otherwise full day of learning.
Costumes for Beats and Treats, Friday, October 28, 6:00 to 8:00
In order to assure a fun time for everyone during our Beats and Treats PTO Event, please follow these guidelines when choosing a costume to wear.
Logan 不举行任何全校的活动来庆祝万圣节。 每个班级教室会举行小的秋季节日活动。请跟你的孩子的老师了解详细情况。虽然我们希望所有的家庭都享受万圣节的创意活动， 但是我们也知道“打扮和角色扮演”会影响那一整天的学校。 所以学生不要穿角色扮演的衣服来参加班级教室的庆祝活动。我们鼓励每个人穿角色扮演的衣服去参加 10 月28 日的Beats and Treats 活动。
Beats and Treats角色扮演服装, 星期五，10月28， 6：00- 8：00
为了保证每个人都在我们的Beats and Treats PTO 活动中感到愉快， 请在选择角色扮演服装时遵随以下的条例：
ローガン小学校ではハロウィーン祭りを行いません。秋祭りという呼び方をし、各教室で小さいパーティを催します。詳細については担任の方から連絡があります。家族の皆さんがクリエイティブな発想でハロウィーンを楽しんで欲しいわけですが、本校内で一日中コスプレをすることは本来の学習の妨げになるおそれがあります。そのため、各教室で行うパーティではコスチュームを着ないでください。そのかわり、来る10月28日に開催するBeats and Treatsのパーティでは、ぜひコスチュームを着て参加してください。各教室でのパーティは、きっと学習の疲れをとる良い息抜きになることでしょう。
Beats and Treatsコスチュームパーティ 日時：10月28日金曜日18:00-20:00
PTO主催Breats and Treatsパーティを皆さんで楽しむため、参加に際しては以下のガイドラインを守りましょう。
