FYI Rose City Park Parents – new Vietnamese dual language immersion option

Dual language immersion (DLI) education provides social, cognitive and academic benefits to children and prepares them to be successful in a global society. Starting in 2018, one of the newest language programs – the Vietnamese DLI program – is moving to our neighborhood: Rose City Park for K-5 students.

Families of students in the Vietnamese program would like to encourage both native Vietnamese-speaking families and non-native speaking families looking for a challenging, engaging, and highly beneficial language and social program to apply. This program seeks an even mix of native and non-native speaking children. Chances of securing a spot in the Vietnamese program have traditionally been higher than the other more established dual language programs of PPS so it presents a great opportunity for families who would like their children to have an increased chance of gaining access to a dual language education.

Students entering kindergarten must apply through the School Lottery between Feb. 7 and March 2 at www.pps.net/schoolchoice and attend an open house at the school. The open house for the Vietnamese DLI program takes place next Tuesday, February 13th from 6-7 pm at Rose City Park (2334 NE 57th Ave).

A current Vietnamese-American family has a kindergartner in the program this year and is happy to answer questions about their experience. Please contact Sarah Tran (st.tran@gmail.com) if you’d like to discuss this program.

(Note that most DLI programs do offer neighborhood families priority if there are more applicants than spots.)

Rose City Park Neighborhood Association Seeks Neighbor Input

At January 23 General Meeting!

Neighbors are invited to come learn more about what RCPNA does, provide feedback on what the neighborhood association should be doing, and most importantly, tell us how they can help. The meeting will be set up like an Open House/“speed dating” session, so neighbors can learn about the following committees:  Land Use and Transportation, Environment, Communications, Annual Clean-Up Event, Entertainment, Emergency Preparedness (NET) and Local Business.

The meeting is open to the public and the venue is ADA-and transit-accessible (TriMet bus lines 12 and 71).  Free pizza, snacks, drinks, and raffle prizes will be offered.  Doors open at 6:40 pm.
