San Juan School hosts Dual Immersion Parent Workshop

San Juan School will be having a Parent Workshop for their Dual Language Immersion Program Jan. 9, in the school’s cafeteria from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This workshop is for families currently enrolled in the K-5th grade program and for interested preschool and kindergarten families. Leading the workshop will be one of California’s leading experts on dual language education, Rosa Molina from the Association of Two-Way & Dual Language Education. Topics include the benefits of being fluent in two or more languages starting in kindergarten and what expectations parents should have for their children acquiring a second language. Childcare will be provided. Please call Sara Frieberg at 623-9945 for any questions or the school’s office at 623-4538.

New grade offers line of transition

Michelle McCoun’s 32 students look just like the other kindergarten pupils at R.O. Hardin School on a Tuesday morning during the second week of school. Some are dressed in the khaki and navy blue of the school uniforms. They were still getting the hang of picking up their free breakfast from the cafeteria or getting a snack from home out of their back pack. And they all struggled a bit with forming a straight line and following it back into the classroom.
