Fabulous Field Trip
On April 1, 2011, all limited English proficient and bilingual students in grades 3-8 attended the Columbia International Festival. Students visited booths from over 50 countries. Each grade level gathered information, interviewed representatives of some of the countries and did research in order to present a social studies project. There was folk dancing and our students joined the dance around the room. We special oredered pizza to be brought in. Adult Chaperones were great and student chaperones were fabulous.
Last fall the ESOL program sponsored a celebration of reading. Limited English profient and biligual students K-12 gathered with their family at Books-A-Million in Lexington for a scavenger hunt through the large book store. They discovered the section for "Kids" and reported back on The Magic Treehouse books as well as Captian Underpants the new Wimpy Kid book.
