Community Outreach for Spanish and Arabic Speakers


Do you Speak Spanish or Arabic at home? Would you like to learn more about District 229 in your home language? 

Students in Spanish 4 and 4 Honors along with the Muslim Student Association will host the fourth annual Community Outreach Event for Spanish and Arabic Speaking parents of District 229.  This community outreach event is scheduled for the evening of November 15, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the Media Center.  The purpose of this event is to foster a relationship between Oak Lawn Community High School and its Spanish and Arabic speaking communities.  This will be a wonderful opportunity for students in Spanish classes and the MSA to use the Spanish and Arabic languages in a safe and fun environment.  

Additionally, parents will be able to access important information about Oak Lawn Community High School in both languages regarding (but not limited to): Athletics, clubs, graduation information, and technology.  Thea Meierkort and Samantha Razik will represent student services to share information about post high school planning. 

This will be the first year the Spanish community outreach will be combined with speakers of Arabic and the students and teachers are excited for this change! The students along with their teachers are looking forward to reaching a broader audience and welcoming more individuals to our Spartan community!
