Our school district is experiencing tremendous enrollment growth. We are a popular school district with lots of housing growth; with that growth comes families with children. Over the next ten years PLSAS is expecting an additional 2,185 students spread across all grade levels (2017/18 – 2026/27). Long-term facilities planning is underway, with the district's Facilities Task Force meeting to study enrollment and demographic data. The Task Force will identify needs, generate ideas and provide input to a Facilities Design. There will be opportunities for the public to review options and provide input before Board action this spring. More information.
La ola del lago
¡Bienvenidos! Welcome! La ola del lago offers a full day of core curriculum in Spanish to students in kindergarten, first grade and second grade.
Language immersion education is the most effective type of language acquisition instruction. The goal of language immersion is for students to become proficient in the target language and increase cultural and global awareness.
The immersion classroom is similar to a traditional Kindergarten and first grade curriculum, except all classroom instruction is in the Spanish language. In the classroom, the teacher speaks the Spanish language the entire time using expressive tones, exaggerated gestures, facial expressions, and many visual aids. To draw students into using the language, teachers often use songs, useful phrases, chants, and rhymes and carefully structure the day with familiar routines.
