When Claire started school, we decided to enroll her in a dual immersion program. This means that the students are taught the 2nd language in an immersive system.
We had to apply for enrollment outside of our home school district because our school district does not offer such a program.
This program is unique and we are fortunate to be a part of it. Claire loves it and she is thriving. For a lot of reasons, her school, Veeh Elementary had to be shut down after the 2018-2019 school session, and all the students from her class were absorbed by neighboring schools.
Thorman Elementary took on the students from the dual immersion program and as far as we have been told and for the foreseeable future, this seems to be the permanent home for the dual immersion program in the TUSD.
Here is a walkthrough of the Thorman and Currie schools. This was recorded at the beginning of 2019 to show parents what the campus looks like and what to expect if they were going to move their kids form Veeh to Thorman.
I'm very excited to see Claire continuing this program for 1st grade, and I was even more excited to meet the new teachers and staff.
I feel like her teacher is highly qualified and will do great with all these new students. If your kid is joining the program, and you missed the orientation night, this video is for you.
Here is the video, I had to split it into two parts because my PapiDaddyTV channel is still in restricted mode until I get more subscribers. By the way, please go and subscribe to help me out.
If you're thinking of enrolling your Kindergarten or 1st-grade student to the TUSD dual immersion program, then this video may give you an idea of what to expect.
Ms. Quevedo gives us the lowdown on how the program works, what to expect, how she works. I really love her energy and dedication.
This is the Q&A session. Not a whole lot to say about this, just parents asking some good questions.
