Fremont expanding Mandarin Immersion Program
Submitted By Wei-Lin Tong
Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) is planning to expand the magnet Mandarin Immersion Program to two kindergarten classes, two first grade classes and one second grade class, beginning Fall 2012.
With registration beginning now in January for the 2012-2013 school year, FUSD and the Chinese Immersion Parents' Council of Fremont are sponsoring an informational meeting for those interested in enrolling their children in the Mandarin (Chinese) Immersion Program.
The Mandarin Immersion Program offers children the opportunity to learn the state-mandated curriculum while immersed in a Mandarin instruction environment in a public education setting. First grade is the last year for non-Chinese speakers to enter the immersion program.
There is no cost to the program and the value of a bilingual education is priceless!
