Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools is looking for name recommendations for our new elementary school that will be opening in the Big Sky Estates development in Savage in 2020. A committee will review all name suggestions and will make a recommendation to the School Board in February for their review and final decision.
La ola del lago
¡Bienvenidos! Welcome! La ola del lago offers a full day of core curriculum in Spanish to students in elementary school.
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 elementary 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.
