Open house next week for unique school program in nearby South Park
From partner site West Seattle Blog but potentially of interest to White Center/Highland Park-area parents: Concord Elementary, which is in South Park but is included in Seattle Public Schools‘ “West Seattle South” cluster, is trying to get the word out about its unique Two-Way Bilingual Program, and there’s a parent-information meeting next week. Concord PTA president Susie Clark (who is also a teacher, at Madison Middle School) explains, “The dual language program is unique in that is gives our native Spanish speakers a chance to learn reading and writing in Spanish and our native English speakers have the opportunity to learn Spanish starting in kindergarten with 30% of their day in Spanish and increasing to 70% by the time they are in 5th grade.” Susie sent along the informational brochure – it’s in two parts, here and here. Interested families are welcome to attend next week’s meeting, 6:30 pm January 21, 723 Concord Street (map). Susie is also happy to answer questions (e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org).
