SPANISH CLUB

Hola from The Language Project! Did you know Schumacher has a Spanish Club? We are currently accepting enrollments; simply click here to enroll your student.


Bilingualism has many benefits! Aside from acquiring a language, bilingual students on average multitask at a higher rate, test higher on standardized tests, and their brains function at a higher rate. Check out this news article on bilingual brain benefits: http://www.foxnews.com/health/2014/11/13/people-who-speak-two-language-have-more-brain-power-study-says/?intcmp=ob_homepage_health&intcmp=obnetwork.

Email us at director@languageprojectkids.com for questions or more information. We look forward to having your student join in on our bilingual journey.

EARLY BIRD LEARNING CENTER PRESCHOOL

The Early Bird Learning Center is Accepting Enrollments for the 2015- 2016 School Year. Would you like to get your three or four year old on the path to a lifelong love of learning? If so, then enroll your child in The Early Bird Learning Center, a Child Development Laboratory program at Liberty High School. The learning center follows the LPS school calendar and hours are 8:00am-4:00pm. Tuition is $600 per month, but The Early Bird Learning Center is excited to offer two incentives to our future families through early enrollment and referrals.


Early Bird students are embraced within the dynamic school community of Liberty High School. The Family Consumer Sciences Program continues to flourish and grow. Incredible connections are made every day with our high school role models. In addition many other departments continue to collaborate with our program to enrich the learning, teaching, and curriculum. Our learning has expanded to include Chinese culture and language lessons, instructional lessons taught by our future teachers enrolled in the Educational Internship Program, weekly "field trips" to the Library Media Center, and mini-lessons orchestrated by our A+ students.


If you have any questions, please feel free to call Megan DiLonardo at (816) 736-7075 or Bridget Herrman at (816) 736-5332.
