Dear DLA Families,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! As you know, our school has grown and we have moved to a bigger space across the hall. We are now in Suite 300.
DLA had a great 2016-2017 year. One of our adult students, Luis Loza, was accepted to the University of Coimbra. Our students sang to the great Carlos do Carmo, and we implemented a bilingual program in the early grades, among many other accomplishments.
Our teachers are learning, growing, collaborating, and planning for new and improved programs for the coming year. We are all rested and ready to teach. As educators, we are not just teaching students a new language, but also the beautiful culture that surrounds it. However, to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school.
The success of our school is based on respect, work and preparation from all of us. We encourage parents to join out PTO, or become the classroom mom, dad, grandparent, or friend.
School starts Monday, September 11th and Saturday, September 16th.
The wonderful Discovery Language Academy staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
We would like to invite all our families to our Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 27th and Thursday, September 28th at 7PM. Someone will be by the elevator to bring up you up to the school. On this night, you will have the chance to meet your child’s teacher and see some of their early work at DLA.
Leslie Vicente, Executive Director
