Spanish Immersion

We are excited to announce that Lebanon City Schools and Bowman Primary School will be continuing to pilot a Spanish immersion program for the 2019-2020 school year.  Next year will be the second year of the three year pilot. Current Kindergarten students have the opportunity to be selected (by lottery) for first grade Spanish immersion classrooms this spring.

Parents of Kindergarten students are invited to attend an informational session to learn about this opportunity. During the session we will present the Spanish immersion model, our tentative implementation plans, and answer questions that parents have about their child’s participation. The pilot program will be limited and attendance at the information meeting is highly encouraged.
