Kindergarteners can learn a second language in Humble ISD

HE Dual Language

The Humble ISD Dual Language Program is hosting meetings to highlight the benefits of giving children the gift of a second language. Parents of children starting kindergarten in Humble ISD for the 2016-2017 school year are invited to attend on Thursday, March 3 at 8 a.m. (meeting and tour) and 6 p.m. (meeting only) OR on Thursday, March 10 at 8 a.m. (parent tour only) at Humble Elementary School, 20252 Fieldtree Drive. There will be refreshments, door prizes, and free child care for the 6 p.m. meeting only.  


The Dual Language Program teaches Spanish and English to native and non-native speakers of English in a mixed group setting through literacy in the core content areas and adheres to the 50/50 model, which provides 50 percent of instruction in Spanish and 50 percent of instruction in English.


The Carrico family decided to enroll their daughter, Kennedy, in the Humble Elementary Dual Language Program “so that she would get exposure to other cultures and learn a language that I couldn’t teach her at home,” said Mandy Carrico. “We’re hoping by the time she graduates from the program in fifth grade that she’ll be ready for advanced Spanish courses.”
