A large thank you to Dr. Angela Palmieri - for the Dual Language Presentation at last night's Black Families Council Meeting.
The first in our "Celebrating & Affirming Our Students" presentation series, this was an insightful presentation into the benefits of enrolling in the Dual Language programs, and we are looking forward to a Part II discussion for resources & allocations for students who are looking for global language enrichment who are outside of Grades Preschool-Kindergarten!
