Los Angeles Mandarin immersion program so popular they expect press at registration!

[This is from the Broadway Elementary School Social Media/PR coordinator, which just shows you what a powerhouse school it is that they even have a parent volunteer who does that. Here’s the page for their parent group, Dragon Sprouts.–Beth]

Enrollment applications for the Mandarin Immersion 2014–15 Kindergarten cohort are now available in the Main Office at Broadway Elementary School. The one-page application can be picked up Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Although we are not encouraging anyone to line-up at 1:30 in the morning like they did last year – we are prepared for some parents to do just that and expect to have some local media coverage of the enrollment process on 3/3.
Parents will fill out the LAUSD enrollment packet AFTER they are accepted into the program. This is the application procedure, not the enrollment procedure which is a bit of change from previous years.

The World Journal (Chinese Daily News) ran an article on the Chinese New Year celebrations taking place at Broadway this week
The Sing Tao Daily also ran a detailed profile of the BMI program, including the program’s history and its quick expansion and popularity this week. The online paper only lets your read part of the story (because they want you to buy the paper).
Here is the link – I also have some images of the paper if you would like to use them. We are in the process of getting a readable PDF version of the articles in their entirety to be distributed to our MI community via our Facebook page.
