This is an opportunity for parents of incoming kindergarten students to talk with staff of the various open enrollment schools. As you know, Dooley is the only Japanese dual language school in the district. We are fortunate that students have the opportunity to learn two languages. The benefits for children learning two languages spans across academic, and the social realm. If you have any questions about our dual language program, for your upcoming kindergarten student, please feel free to contact the school office.
