Spanish Immersion Parent Info Night
Lincoln Consolidated School's Board of Education recently approved an Elementary Spanish Immersion Program to begin this fall. The program will begin as a single K-1 classroom and will add a grade each year until it is a K-5 program. The new program will be part of the Lincoln Multi-Age program and will be housed with LMA in Redner Elementary.
Information nights will be held on Tuesday, June 19th and Thursday, June 21st from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the Brick Elementary School Auditorium. These meetings will provide an overview of the Spanish Immersion Program as well as the Lincoln-Multi-Age / High Scope program. The meetings will cover the placement / enrollment process with Q & A at the end.
Because this program was recently approved, it is possible to request placement even if you are already placed in a different school or program at Lincoln Schools. Lincoln Schools is a school of choice district, so families out-of-district may also request placement in the program.
The Lincoln Spanish Immersion Program is intended to be a magnet program to prepare students to successfully engage in life in the global community. Students will learn the same curriculum as other elementary school students. However, starting in kindergarten, the curriculum will be delivered in Spanish. There is a significant volume of developmental research that indicates early learning of a second language leads to the greatest benefits associated with bilingualism.
If you are interested in learning more about this program and/or want to enroll, we hope you can attend one of the meetings. If you are interested, but cannot attend either night, please contact Principle Carol McCoy (email@example.com) and Jeremy Reed (firstname.lastname@example.org).
