Scholastic Book Fair Donations to Urban Promise

Jo Harney

All of the proceeds from our recent book fair went to benefit Urban Promise School in Wilmington. We delivered loads of books, selected by their teachers, to the students and their principal, Mrs. Rhonda Raines. Thank you, Mrs. Tuleya and Mrs. Davis, for managing our fair and making these donations possible. The students were thrilled with the new books!

Spanish at CCEP

Jo Harney

Learning Spanish is as easy as uno, dos, tres for Christ Church's three-, four-, and five-year-olds! Since 2016, Christ Church has teamed up with Language University to teach students Spanish through fun! And with each year, more and more parents share stories about their children jumping out of bed on "Spanish Day!" and singing in Spanish at home!

 Lia Andrews, the director of Language U, believes that the key to teaching children a second language is to present lessons as a game. Each week, students sing and dance in Spanish and create labeled crafts that work as perfect study tools (shhhh!!!) at home. And don't forget the games! All of LU's lessons finish off with a thematic activity that features target vocabulary for stress-free learning.

 This week, students will learn their winter clothes vocabulary, and in the coming weeks, they will travel to outer space! Students will finish the year with a graduation ceremony that showcases their knowledge and their love for language. Your child can also learn Spanish with LU's fun (and educational) album, ¡Listos!, which features all of the songs that Christ Church students rock out to in class and at home! For info about LU, please visit www.languageuniv.com, or email us at TeamLU@languageuniv.com.
