Giving Your Child the Gift of a Second Language

The Thompson School District offers Dual Language Immersion Programs in Spanish in two schools in Loveland: Truscott Elementary School and Cottonwood Plains Elementary School. A 50/50 program is a team approach where instruction is delivered 50% of the time in English and 50% of the time in Spanish by two qualified teachers. Dual Language Immersion is an academic program that enhances the development of content in two languages-English and Spanish, as well as literacy in both languages, so that students will graduate ready for college, career, and life in a globally competitive economy.

Truscott Elementary and at Cottonwood Plains Elementary are now accepting applications for Open Enrollment/School of Choice for both kindergarten and first grade. Even if your child was not able to enroll in kindergarten last year, your child can start this great dual language immersion program in first grade.

This unique program builds student linguistic skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing in both English and Spanish. Students learn standards-based content as they become linguistically and academically proficient in two languages. This is such a great opportunity to begin to prepare your child for a global community and an international workforce.

Give your child the gift of language! Enroll in a TSD Dual Language Immersion Program. Please contact Truscott Elementary (970.613.6900) or Cottonwood Plains Elementary (970.613.5900) to learn more.
