Union City, Oregon to get Mandarin immersion school
UNION, Ore. (AP) — The Union Hotel, which opened in 1921, is a local icon, owning the distinction of being one of the oldest hotels in Eastern Oregon.
Soon the hotel will own another distinction. The building will be the site of one of the few bilingual elementary schools in Oregon.
Charlie Morden and partner Ruth Rush, owners and operators of the Union Hotel, plan to open a Chinese language immersion school at the Union Hotel as early as September 2016. Children will be taught in both Mandarin Chinese and English on the expansive and now vacant third floor of the Union Hotel plus other portions of the building.
“Math, for example, will be taught in Chinese one day and English the next,” Morden said.
