An academic bilingual community fostering global citizenship
Dear Park Spanish Immersion Elementary School Community:

I hope that this finds you well! I hope that you are able to join us for "Welcome Night" tonight from 6:00-7:45 as our teachers share more about themselves, their beliefs about teaching and learning, and information about the year and how we can collaborate on behalf of our 518 incredible learners. See below for more information. Please enter through DOOR 1 by the main office.

Our students are amazing; I have been seeing so much great teamwork and learning in classrooms, outside, and in the cafeteria. Thank you for entrusting us with your children! We continue to practice routines in our new space, including indoor recess! Tomorrow, we will have an assembly to celebrate our school community. We will sing, dance, meet our Amity interns, and learn more about community members as we celebrate the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Take care, and keep reading! Click here to access a "PSI Reading FAQ", developed during the past year through our Steering Committee.

From PTO... Get to know our Amity Interns!
Each year PSI welcomes eight Amity Interns from Spanish speaking countries who assist our teachers in the K-5 classrooms. These interns are either pursuing or have recently completed a college degree with an education focus. The PSI PTO funds 100% of the budget for the interns with the Fall Leer-a-ton and the Spring Carnival fundraising events.

Amity interns live with PSI host families for one semester allowing both an opportunity for greater language learning and cultural exchange. If you are interested in hosting an Amity Intern please email  the Amity coordinators  for more information.
For the next few weeks, read profiles of our amazing Amity group at PSI this year. First up:
