Juan Diego Academy at Holy Rosary Tacoma School Gets Techy: KOMO ABC News Covers It

Washington state's soon getting its first ever two way immersion Catholic school.  The dual language school is launching next fall: the only of its kind, private or public, in Pierce and Thurston counties.  The 120 year old school has history.  If only its walls could talk...

Well, starting this month the school’s walls are getting some upgrades that literally will have the walls talking.

As Komo News reported (watch the story here) new Promethean active boards are being installed in the classrooms. Kindergarten teacher Amparo Farias is especially excited to introduce smart board technology into the curriculum the school is rolling out with all subjects taught in both Spanish and English to next year's pre-K and Kindergarten kids.

Applications for the first year of the program are due in at the end of March. Financial assistance is being awarded based on income. Families are encouraged to apply by then to make the first round of review.  Learn more here: http://www.holyrosarytacoma.org/page.php?id=178.
