Online registration for the program begins on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 4 p.m. To access the online registration link, go to www.blog.lexington1.net, click on “Instruction” under “Departments,” then “World Languages and Partial Immersion.”
Parents who do not have access to a computer may register at any public library or any of our immersion sites from 4–5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 2013. These sites are Gilbert Primary, Meadow Glen Elementary, Midway Elementary, Pleasant Hill Elementary and Red Bank Elementary.
Lexington One’s Partial-Immersion World Languages Program offers children the opportunity to learn a world language as they receive instruction in subjects such as mathematics and science.
Beginning in kindergarten and continuing through Grade 5, students spend half of the school day in classes conducted in the world language, either Chinese/Mandarin, Spanish or French, and the other half of the school day in classes conducted in English. Once students reach middle school, they join more intensive world language and/or content courses.
