On August 9th several of our Italian Service Learning students participated in Vallata's hysterical Parade of Battaglia di Chianchione. This annual parade is celebrated in remembrance of the innocent civilians of Vallata that were lost in the tragic attack of 1496. Students wore traditional costumes which resembled the attire of that time period and participated in a procession throughout the town.

The Italian Service Learning students enjoyed a day at the Amalfi Coast this week. We started our day with a breath taking boat ride from Salerno to Amalfi Coast. From there we spent some time exploring the area and even visited a near by volcanic ash beach. Our final tour of the day included visiting the Villa Cimbrone, a historic building in Ravello. From the Terrace of Infinity in the Villa Cimbrone we were able to see the Bay of Salerno and the mountainous coastline as it drops down to the Mediterranean Sea. This sight is one of the most beautiful panoramas on the Amalfi Coast.

Linden ESL Summer School students discover NJ history while visiting Sandy Hook Lighthouse & Fort Hancock
On July 27, 2015 students visited the nation’s oldest continuously operated lighthouse that has been guiding ships into New York Harbor since 1764. Gateway National Recreational Park Rangers guided our students through both the Sandy Hook Lighthouse and Fort Hancock, which are part of Gateway National Recreational Area. Students not only visited the lighthouse, but also walked though Mortar Battery, an extensive tunnel system that was meant for storage of guns and ammunition and provided coastal defense for New York Harbor from 1895 until 1974.

Students had many opportunities to learn about all types of different careers thanks to 10 speakers taking time out of their busy schedule to speak to them. Not only were they able to explore multiple careers by asking questions in an interactive way, but also they were given a glimpse into what the future might have in store for them.

This year the teachers at the elementary schools chose “Ocean” as the theme for the ESL Summer Enrichment Program. The students enjoyed reading, writing, and arts and crafts projects about beaches, marine life and the ocean. On July 16th the students attended a field trip to the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, where they had an opportunity to see the movie “Whales” in an IMAX dome theater. The students explored fish and turtles that can be found in the oceans and our local rivers. They were also participating in multiple science related stations that the Liberty Science Center offers. This was an interesting experience for both the students and the teachers. The ESL enrichment program has made the summer an educational and memorable experience for our students.
