4th-6th Grade Spanish Books Arrived!

Much appreciation to the CCE families who donated towards the 2024 Gala & Auction Fund-A-Need! About 40 Spanish novels for the intermediate grades arrived, have been previewed by students, and divided. Books will be delivered to classroom libraries this week, and more books are on the way. We are fortunate that our parents and teachers instill the love of reading bilingual books. Our K-3rd Círculo readers will have much to look forward to in 4th-6th grades by reading these engaging books written to support biliteracy and Spanish Language Development.
