We are excited to share that Meriwether Lewis will be implementing a world language program in 2016-2017! MLS applied for and was awarded a year to plan for the program which will provide all Kindergarten and 1st Grade students instruction in another language for 90-120 minutes per week starting next school year. The plan is to increase the program by one grade level every year and potentially supplement it with a language immersion program within 3 years.
Among the first tasks to take on is to select a language. The school administration, in consultation with division level leadership, hopes to decide on a language by October 16. An integral part of the process will be getting feedback from the greater MLS community and staff. If you are interested in learning more and discussing the future of world language programming, please consider attending one of the following forums hosted by the school:
September 16: 9:30-10:30
September 21: 3:00-4:00
September 28: 5:30-6:30
Thank you for your interest!
