Information Nights Scheduled for Prospective Dual Language Immersion Families.

Your child can become bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural at Paseo Pointe School, Laveen’s only Dual Language Immersion (DLI) School.

Join us for a DLI information night
January 25 or February 22
5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
8800 S. 55th Avenue.

Paseo Pointe School offers Dual Language Immersion in Spanish in Grades Preschool-3.

Paseo Pointe’s Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program is based on a 50/50 model in which participating students spend half their day learning content in Spanish (math, science, Spanish) and the other half in English (math, language arts, social studies).

Students who learn a second language typically exceed the academic performance of their monolingual peers and are better prepared to engage in a global society.

DLI is only offered in Grades Preschool—3rd for the 2018-19 school year. Students entering Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade are required to participate in the DLI program. This program will expand a grade level each year until the school is 100% DLI through the eighth grade. Preschool is tuition-based.

Rams Celebrate “Posadas at the Pointe”

Paseo Pointe families celebrated “Posadas at the Pointe” on December 20.

The roots of Las Posadas stretch deeply into Latin culture. It originated in Spain, but it has been a yearly celebration throughout Mexico for over 400 years. The tradition commemorates the biblical story of Mary and Joseph’s difficult journey in search of a warm place to stay the night. (Posadas is Spanish for “lodgings” or “accommodations.”) Posadas begin on December 16 and end nine days later, on December 24. Each night, one family agrees to house the festivities.

Paseo Pointe honored this tradition by providing nine activities for our families to enjoy. Activities included gingerbread house building, pinata and poinsettia crafts, luminarias, caroling, photos with Santa, food, and more!

View photos of the event on the district’s flickr page.
