Cox Mill Elementary Dual Language Mandarin Immersion
For the 2020-2021 school year we are elated to offer Dual Language Mandarin Immersion to all rising Kindergarten students who live in the Cox Mill Elementary School district, as well as any rising Kindergarten students in Cabarrus County. Cox Mill will offer two Kindergarten classes for the 2020-2021 school year.
The instructional program for students enrolled in the Dual Language Immersion (DL/I) program will be based on the Common Core Standards, so that students are exposed to the same curriculum as other students in Cabarrus County Schools. Those who are in the DL/I program will receive that instruction in both Mandarin and English, allowing them to learn a second language while simultaneously learning the kindergarten curriculum. However the benefits of language immersion are three-fold: increased cognitive skills, higher achievement in other academic areas and higher standardized test scores (Stewart, 2005).
For further information on the Dual Language Immersion program or the other magnet programs offered through Cabarrus County Schools, please visit our website, https://www.cabarrus.k12.nc.us/Page/4857. We look forward to sharing the benefits of the Dual Language Immersion program with you. If you have questions before these dates, please contact one of our administrators, Bob Marshall, Traci Davis or Alison Moore.Sincerely,
Principal, Cox Mill Elementary
