Opening doors with language

Prince George's County Public Schools' Parent Liaison Sandra Butler and members of DuVal High School are supporting the needs of their community through the development of English classes. The classes are designed to help county's Spanish-speaking residents. According to Liz Skalski of the Prince George's Gazette, "The classes began Monday and will be held for one hour every week through June 14 for Spanish-speaking adults who live in the Lanham area to increase their ability to speak, read and write English. The classes, which are taught in English and follow a textbook curriculum, are organized and taught by three members of the Spanish ministry at First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Upper Marlboro. A member of the school's Parent Teacher Student Association attends the church."
