Mandarin immersion parent meetings set
Parents of incoming kindergartners are invited to attend an informational meeting on the district’s Mandarin Immersion Program. From kindergarten through fourth grade children in the immersion program receive 50% of their instruction in Mandarin. As a result, the students become fluent in listening, speaking, reading, and writing Mandarin. There is limited space in the optional program (only 2 classes) at Cherokee School, but a free shuttle bus ensures equal access to the program to all Lake Forest families. If you are interested in learning about the benefits of this program for your child, join us on either Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. or Jan. 10 at 9 a.m. at the Lake Forest Admin Center (LFHS West Campus), 300 S. Waukegan Road. For more information, contact Dr. Andy Henrikson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (847) 604-7440.

DPMS APT planning for class gift
The Deer Path Middle School APT and administration are in the planning process for this year’s Class of 2013 community gift. This year, DPM will be working to organize a service-learning day in which students will have the opportunity to give back to the community. The goal is for all eighth graders to tally a minimum of 2013 community service hours as their gift to others. Students are reminded to log their individual service hours in the district community service database. From the DPM home page, click on the Community Service Hours link (on the far right column), and follow the directions.
