As you open your letter from SFUSD, a lucky few of you will be accepted into Starr King or Jose Ortega's Mandarin Immersion programs for fall 2012. For those of you who got into the first round, WELCOME!

As your family begins this exciting journey into immersion education, we would like to invite you to an informational meeting where you will have the opportunity to chat with the principals of Jose Ortega and Starr King, teachers, parents and current fourth and fifth graders. Questions will be taken in English and Mandarin.


Date: April 3 at 5:45pm – 7:15pm
Location: Jose Ortega Elementary School, 400 Sargent St. SF, CA 94132
Children are welcome, however, childcare will not be provided.


If you’re unable to attend but still have questions about Mandarin immersion, please email us at immersioneducation@gmail.com

For those of you who did not get in, but are still interested in the program, do not despair; there are typically openings prior to the start of the school year. Also feel free to attend.

Finally, for those of you getting an early start previewing schools and programs for Fall 2013, this would be a great place to get a feeling for whether SFUSD's Mandarin immersion program is right for your family.
