Starting next week the Kennewick School District will be offering information meetings for their dual language program.
The meetings will be held on February 7th and the 13th.
In the dual language program, children have the chance to become bilingual, bi-literate and have cross-cultural awareness in two languages.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for the families to acquire another language that will take them throughout their whole life," said Diana Valdovinos, dual language program facilitator.
The program runs from kindergarten through fifth grade.
Kennewick parents who have students entering kindergarten in august of 2013 and are interested in enrolling their child in the dual language program must attend the meeting before they can continue the application process.
Information is available at ksd.org.
You can read more about the dual language program in the current issue of Tu Decides the bilingual newspaper.
