Dual Language Immersion Program

Our Dual Language Immersion Program in Mrs. Creger's and Mrs. Escobar's Kindergarten classes has been very successful this year!  Ask us about the Dual Language Immersion program continuing at Viewmont Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year.  Program enrollment is for rising kindergarten students. Dual language classes are bilingual classes where native-English speakers and native-Spanish speakers learn together with the goal of being proficient in both languages.  If you are interested in learning more, please call our office to request more information or speak with someone about this exciting program and opportunity for rising kindergarten students.
