Opportunity is only for incoming kindergarten students


Turnagain Elementary School will hold an additional lottery opportunity next week. The special lottery is open only to incoming kindergarten families interested in the Russian Partial Immersion Program.


In Turnagain’s Russian Partial Immersion Program, students in grades K-6 are immersed in Russian for half of the school day. Students learn Russian culture and are taught science and social studies in Russian; language arts and math are taught in English. Students become functionally proficient in speaking, reading and writing both English and Russian. Russian-speaking students are also encouraged to enroll in the program.


Lottery applications, available at www.asdk12.org/forms/uploads/ELE249_Lottery.pdf, must be turned in to Turnagain Elementary by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 14. The lottery draw will take place the following morning.
