Dear Raíces Dual Language Academy Families,
Welcome to Raíces! We are proud to be the first dual language immersion school in Central Falls, serving Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade students for the 2019-2020 school year. We are opening our doors on September 3, 2019 for our inaugural year.
At Raíces, your children will learn academic content in English for 50% of the time and in Spanish for 50% of the time. Our goals are for your children to become bilingual, biliterate, excel academically, and develop high levels of cultural competence.
We believe that all families bring a wealth of linguistic, cultural, personal, and professional knowledge, and family participation in the life of the school is integral to student success. You can expect to have an equal voice at the table, and to be treated respectfully by our team. Please stay tuned for ways to become involved, as we need all families' involvement for the school to flourish!
On September 3, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students and their families will have 1.5 hour classroom orientations. Please make sure to schedule a time with Ms. Maria in our main office. Students in grades 1-6 should report to school between 8:00-8:15 for a full school day. We look forward to welcoming you!
Kim Leimer, Principal
