This school year, Horizon Elementary participated in a pilot program of 56 students in Chinese dual immersion for half-day kindergarten. Our guest teacher from China, Wang Yuling, has done an outstanding job. After this school year, she will be returning to China to resume her teaching career there. We will truly miss her. Horizon Elementary will not be continuing dual immersion in kindergarten next year. The State of Utah is not funding kindergarten dual immersion but will continue to help fund grades 1 – 12. We have also had other district budget cuts, which makes the sustainability of a kindergarten dual immersion program difficult. We love the Chinese dual immersion program at Horizon and will continue to move forward next year in offering the best program possible for our students in first, second, and third grade. We appreciate the support that we have received from our parents, school community, and state leaders.
