Studies have shown that the younger a child is when exposed to a second language, the more easily a second language can be learned. Speaking a second language positively affects intellectual growth and improves creative thinking and problem solving abilities, while enhancing vocabulary development and increasing cultural awareness.
A series of Open Houses have been planned in order to provide parents with the opportunity to learn more about the Spanish Immersion Program.
The Open Houses will take place at 9:00 a.m. on the following dates at Martin Millennium Academy at 411 E. Johnston Street in Tarboro:
Thursday, February 9, 2017
Friday, February 17, 2017
Wednesday, February 22, 2017
Following classroom visits, Martin Millennium Academy staff will be available to answer questions. Parents interested in attending should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
