Thanks to parent feedback and enthusiasm, and support from Dr. Ashton, Mr. Clarke, 

our Director of Elementary Curriculum, Niki Hazel, and superintendent, Dr. Smith,

Burnt Mills Elementary School will be transitioning to a FULL Immersion Program!  

 

Our Immersion Team is EXCITED to bring more Spanish to your children and immerse them more in the Spanish language and culture.

 

The process of transitioning to a full immersion program will require 3 years for all grades to become full.  

Please see the chart below to understand what the next few years will look like for your child.

Volunteer Opportunity:  Immersion Book Room!!!!

Great news!  Our wonderful leader, Dr. Ashton, has provided us with $7,000 to purchase new books for teaching reading in Spanish!  The books are already starting to come in and will soon be used in reading groups from K through 3rd grades.  They are nice, sturdy books with colorful illustrations and pictures.  It is very exciting!

This year, four classrooms, Grades K-3rd are using reading materials in Spanish. Because of this, we are looking to combine and organize all our immersion reading materials in the existing bookroom.  Our system will mirror the system used by English Academy.  It is going to be great to see all our wonderful resources in one location where all classes will have access to them whenever they need.  We are looking to have this Book Room up and running by winter break.

Here is where you all come in!  I am looking for volunteers to help me over the next few weeks.  Here are some tasks that we need to accomplish:

                ~ Label and stamp books

                    ~ Add new books to our book inventory

                    ~ Inventory existing books in classrooms

                    ~ Organize books into baskets

                    ~ Label baskets

If you have time to help out, I would greatly appreciate any time you can donate to our cause!  At the end we will have a little “Opening Ceremony” to inaugurate our beautiful Immersion Book Room!  Please follow this link to sign up for a time:  www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C044CA9AA28A3FD0-immersion 

Thank you for your time and help!
