A quick walk for an icy treat was the perfect way for the Summer ESL Academy’s 240 students to take a break recently.
The Summer ESL Academy at Scarlett Middle School teaches English Learners (EL) entering 4-8 grades reading, writing and speaking English through an integrated science/social studies curriculum. The program is a partnership between AAPS and the University of Michigan School of Education.
