Cross Cultural Exchange
Puente La Amistad – The Friendship Bridge
Our Spanish Bilingual Pathway offers our students a unique and wonderful opportunity for cultural exchange between students. Parents and students from our two programs, general education and bilingual pathway, are encouraged to come together as our Glen Park community. This year we parents have started informal language exchanges to improve our language skills and the children have come together for Sunday soccer in the park. The program is ultimately designed to serve as a bridge to friendship, fostering the positive relationships between students in the two programs.
*In the 2015-16 school year, our goal is to develop a pilot program that provides General Education students with opportunities to learn Spanish language and cultural awareness. In exchange, our students in the Spanish Bilingual Pathway will be empowered with leadership opportunities as they act as ambassadors to their Spanish language and culture. We are currently looking for parents to help initiate this idea. Please contact the PTO if you are interested in helping to develop the program.
