“The project "Fostering a Welcoming Environment for Immigrant Students" is an effort to create a more welcoming and inclusive environment for newly arrived immigrant students at Boston International Newcomers Academy (BINcA). Our goal is to increase student and family awareness and education of school and community resources as well as to foster positive connections between incoming students and their families with BINcA staff and teachers as a way to promote school and community engagement and learning.”
