On behalf of Doctors for Healthy Communities (DHC), volunteers delivered reusable water bottles & disposable water cups from Louisville Water Company and digital thermometers for Newcomer Academy School of JCPS on February 26th, 2021.
The goal of the English as a Second Language (ESL) Newcomer Academy is to provide a welcoming and respectful environment that meets the unique linguistic, academic, and social/emotional needs of sixth- through tenth-grade English Language Learners (ELLs) in the JCPS District. These students typically are in their first year of instruction in a U.S. school. They are usually at the beginning levels of English proficiency and may have had limited, or interrupted, educational experiences in their native countries.
Louisville Water Company has produced water since 1860. They provided Louisville pure tap® bottles for the students in JCPS.
DHC is humbled to be part of the initiative to support our school children during this pandemic by providing digital thermometers for temperature screening & water bottles from Louisville Water Company.
