Casper dual language program receives grant from National Security Agency

Paradise Valley Elementary School will receive $70,000 from the National Security Agency to support students learning Mandarin Chinese at the school.

The grant was announced and approved Monday night during a Natrona County School District board meeting.

The money will be used to support the school’s summer Mandarin Chinese immersion camp.

The grant money will help pay instructor salaries, said district spokesman Kelly Eastes.

The camp will take place July 8 through July 24, providing 144 students in grades K-5 at the school with a dual-language learning opportunity.

There will be morning and afternoon sessions. During each session, the camp has room for 20 incoming kindergartners, 20 first-graders from the school’s dual-language program and 22 spots for those in the second grade program.

In addition, there is space for 20 third through fifth grade students who are not in the dual language immersion program.
