Park Elementary DLI Students Celebrate Día de los Muertos

 

Dual Language Immersion students from Park Elementary held a Día de los Muertos Celebration in partnership with the Nicolaysen Art Museum!

The Dual Language Immersion students studied Día de los Muertos and prepared presentations explaining the holiday in both Spanish and English for their friends and families!

Families and community members were able to enjoy an authentic dinner, try their hand at an obstacle course, and learn all about the Día de los Muertos traditions!

The observance of this holiday is part of the cultural component of the Dual Language Immersion program and the goal is to help the students to become aware of the different cultures of the Spanish speaking countries.

The elementary DLI Program at NCSD provides an opportunity for students to receive half of their primary instruction on Wyoming Content and Performance Standards in Science, Social Studies, Math, and Literacy in the target language (Spanish or Mandarin). The other half of a student’s day is spent in a traditional English classroom focusing on English/Language Arts Standards as well as supporting the Content Standards taught in the target language class

Terrific work DLI students! #EverydayExcellence #StudentSnapshot
