Applications for Chinese Immersion for students who will be in first grade in the 2018-19 school year are now being accepted until February 23, 2018. A meeting for parents of prospective Chinese Immersion students will be held at Eastlake Elementary on February 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the media center. You can download an application at http://immersion.jordandistrict.org or pick one up at the school's office.
Eastlake's Chinese Immersion program begins in first grade. The program includes first through sixth grades. Students are randomly selected to participate from parent applications submitted each spring. Students enrolled in the program receive instruction for half of the day in Chinese and half of the day in English. We follow a two-teacher model with the students changing classrooms in the middle of the school day. The entire school will be learning about Chinese culture and traditions so that all students are exposed to a global education and experience.
