GREENVILLE — The outcome of the first year of the Chinese immersion program at Greenville Public School has gone beyond all expectations.
On May 31, kindergarteners from the class of 2025 ended the year with a celebration of the success of the first ever Chinese immersion program at Walnut Hills Elementary School.
“It was wonderful,” said kindergarten teacher and Chinese mentor Kristin Mier. “I am excited for all the kiddos.”
Mier said the program was a fun year full of successful learning and cultural experiences.
To mark that success, a Chinese celebration was held, where more than 200 students, parents and family members joined to watch the immersion students perform songs, dances, skits and more through the Chinese culture.
“I am so proud of our students,” Mier said.
