Episode 28: Dual Language Immersion
Warsaw Community schools is fortunate to have eight amazing elementary schools dedicated to helping all students learn and grow. Beginning next year, all 8 of our Elementary Schools will have a focus. This includes our four state certified STEM schools, our two Dual-Language Immersion Schools, and our two brand new Leadership Academies. The last couple of weeks, we have learned more about our STEM Schools, including the announcement of our brand-new state-certified STEM School Edgewood Middle School, as well as, our Leadership Academies. This week, we learn more about our Dual Language Immersion program.
Mr. Nate Polston, Principal at Leesburg Elementary, Julian Luna, Dual Language Immersion Teacher at Leesburg Elementary, Todd Braddock, Principal at Lakeview Middle School, and Crystal Kreider, Dual Language Immersion Coach, join Aimee and Kyle to discuss Dual Language Immersion at Eisenhower, Leesburg, and beginning next year, Lakeview Middle School. Through the conversation, you will learn more about what DLI looks like at the Elementary and Middle School level, how the program connects to the mission of Warsaw Community Schools, and how to apply to participate in the program.
Parents of incoming kindergartners interested in DLI should start the registration process online on Warsaw’s website. Parents of current 6th graders who are native Spanish speakers can indicate their interest in DLI on this Google Form. Both processes need to be completed by June 1st in order to be eligible to participate in the DLI lottery. For more information about DLI, visit the Warsaw website!
