Kindergarten Dual Language Info Night

  • English: 5:30-6:30 p.m.
  • Spanish: 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Parents interested in learning more about the district's Dual Language program are invited to attend an information night on Wednesday, March 18 in the Autumn Creek Elementary School Library, 2377 Autumn Creek Blvd., Yorkville. Childcare will be available.

Dual Language kindergarten is open to all students enrolling in the fall for the 2020-21 school year. A lottery will be held if there are more students interested than spaces available. The Dual Language Information Night provides incoming kindergarten parents an opportunity to turn in their children's application forms to enter the program, and to ask questions.

What is a Dual Language program?

  • All students develop high levels of proficiency in Spanish and English and learn to read, write, listen, and speak two languages equally well over time
  • Students achieve grade-level academic performance in Spanish and English
  • Students develop positive cross-cultural attitudes and behaviors
  • Students gain an edge in high school, college, and the workplace of a global economy
