Congratulations to all of our new Dual Immersion incoming Kindergarten students for being selected to participate in our program! Parents were notified by telephone on Friday of their acceptance into the program, and confirmation letters will be sent this week. Please attend a mandatory Dual Immersion Commitment Meeting on Monday, June 1st at 6:00 p.m. in Room 604.
Families that were not selected during the lottery will be contacted this week, and you will be placed on a waiting list, and should space become available we will notify you. We understand that it may be a disappointment if you were not selected, however, due to the popularity of this program in our area, we cannot accommodate all interested students. As explained in a handout that was passed out during Kindergarten Registration, as well as on our Dual Immersion page on this website, the number of classes we open depends not only on overall interest, but in the number of Spanish speaking models that also show interest. To maintain integrity of the program, a certain percentage of students that participate must show competency in Spanish as measured by the LAS (Language Assessment Scales) so that non-native speakers can learn, interact, and be immersed in the language.
We look forward to having our new families join us in Kindergarten, whether it be in Dual Immersion or our English program. Kindergarten Orientation for students and parents in both programs is on Tuesday, July 21 at 8:30 a.m.
