Families at School of Dual Language

Students Get Acquainted with Their New Teachers/Classrooms

Elementary schools welcomed parents and students attending annual “Get Acquainted” events. In addition to the School of Dual Language, these events are taking place today at Elementary South, Elementary North, Townline and Aspen. Families met teachers and dropped off school supplies. Students got a chance to check out their new classrooms before school starts. For more photos, visit the District’s home page.

Children playing during Field Day

Field Day is a Blast

Students had a great time playing outdoors last Friday during the annual Townline/School of Dual Language Field Day. Samples of teamwork and good sportsmanship were everywhere as children played a wide assortment of relay games, tug of war and other fun games.

La Kermés is a Big Hit

Families enjoyed strolling around the wide assortment of booths and tables that comprised La Kermés, the School of Dual Language’s annual Latin American Carnival, last Friday. Volunteers provided samples of delicious snacks, main dishes and desserts from many Latin American countries, including Columbia, Mexico and Puerto Rico, including empanadas, bunuelos, and chicharrones. Children played all sorts of games from bowling to basketball. Families had a chance to win a variety of children’s games through a raffle. Children enjoyed the face-painting and temporary tattoos. Overall, the event provided a wonderful taste of the world and culture south of the border.
