Grattan Community Interpreters

Hello, Grattan Community!

 

Meeting your fellow Grattan families and students is always exciting at the start of a new school year.  Events and volunteering are a great way of finding your place in the community here, and we encourage community more than anything else at Grattan.  After all, community is what makes our school a wonderful place for our kids to learn and grow!

We are currently in the process of trying to reach out to all of our Grattan families who speak languages other than English.  There are district translators for official conferences and meetings, but we are looking to make contact and consistently communicate with our families and students who may find meeting others and making connections within the community a challenge.

We would love to have a committee of people who speak languages other than English, and who are able and willing to be informal translators on the fly.  This committee can also be helpful in identifying those who speak different languages, and possibly make connections that could lead to friendships.  The possibilities are endless!

 

If you join our committee, you are committing to random and informal translation duties for other families and students who may speak the same language.  There will be a call out when there is a need for a translator.  This volunteering opportunity will not have a huge impact on your time or energy.  Please indicate which language you speak when you sign up, either by emailing me at kimk@sfusd.edu or in person (even better!) and I will add your language to the description.

 

Let's give access to all to our community at Grattan!
