Thompson School District Now Accepting 2015-2016 Kindergarten Registration for New Dual Language Immersion Program

Thompson School District announced today that it is now accepting on-line kindergarten registration for its new Dual Language Immersion program, which will be housed at Truscott Elementary School and Cottonwood Plains Elementary School beginning this fall with the 2015-2016 school year.  The program was approved by the district’s Board of Education at its recent business meeting held on March 18.

In the program, children will be taught in both English and Spanish, not only acquiring the robust knowledge that they would gain in a traditional educational setting, but also fully immersing themselves into a cultural world that will greatly benefit them throughout their lives.  Over the years, as their time in the program continues, students will become completely fluent and literate in both languages.  Several similar programs have been created by school districts throughout the United States.

“The TSD dual language immersion program will provide a bold new choice for our district where students can gain well-developed language and literacy skills in two languages, as well as cross-cultural competence,” says Loveland High School teacher Toni Theisen, who has helped spearhead the effort in the district and also served as the 2013 national president of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).  “These are important 21st century skills that will prepare our students to more actively participate and collaborate in our global community and international workplace.”

“Cottonwood Plains and Truscott are excited to be able to offer this incredible opportunity to the students of TSD,” said Karen Hanford, Principal of Truscott Elementary School, and Eric Harting, Principal of Cottonwood Plains Elementary School.  “The linguistic and cognitive advantages of bi-literacy will be great gifts for the students whose families choose this path. We are eager to begin building this program into the premier dual language program in the state.”

To view more information on the kindergarten registration process in TSD, please visit the “2015-16 Kindergarten Registration” link located on the home page of the district web site (www.thompsonschools.org).  The Dual Language Immersion program is expected to fill up quickly; once the available seats in the program are claimed, a wait list will be generated at the district level.

For more information, please contact Michael Hausmann, Thompson School District Public Information Officer, at 613-5011 or at michael.hausmann@thompsonschools.org.
