|Spanish immersion students at Bailey's Elementary School.|
Students currently in prekindergarten may apply for the kindergarten immersion program, and current kindergarten students may apply for the first-grade immersion programs for the 2020-21 school year.
Parents interested in that program are invited to a meeting at Bailey’s ES on Feb. 3, 6:30 p.m.
Ravensworth Elementary School in North Springfield offers a Spanish immersion program for first-graders. There’s a meeting on that program at Ravensworth Jan. 22, 6 p.m.
Students in immersion programs spend approximately half of each day learning mathematics, science, and health, as well as a portion of language arts, in the target language. The other half of the day is spent learning social studies, language arts, and family life education in English.
Applicants will be entered in a lottery. The results will be communicated to parents via email on March 5 for the first-grade immersion program and on April 2 for the kindergarten program.
