Brookhaven Elementary School’s Emergent Bilingual Leadership Team (E.B.L.T.) in partnership with Brookhaven Free Library and CUNY-NYSIEB held its first annual “Read Around the World” event on Thursday, March 11th.

The event was inspired from information collected from a parent survey where it was reported that Brookhaven families represented more than 29 countries around the world!  

To celebrate this unique diversity, Brookhaven Elementary, along with various members of our local and district community came in and read a story from their culture and shared something about their family’s heritage.

Brookhaven Elementary was one of ten schools selected statewide and the only school on Long Island to receive a professional development grant to partner with CUNY-NYSIEB (New York State Initiative on Emergent Bilinguals).
