Thanks to a generous grant from the Spirit of 67 Foundation, parents interested in language learning could have access to a popular online program to facilitate this interest. Currently, all four languages offered in the district are included, and many more (a total of 25 choices are available). Fifteen “seats” have been reserved for parent learning, and these will be allotted on a “first come, first serve” basis for three-month time periods. For more information, contact Joe Malin, firstname.lastname@example.org and share the language you are interested in learning.
