Desert Willow Elementary School‘s sixth grade Spanish Immersion students were in Mexico over the summer attending Spanish class at their sister school, Colegio el Camino.

The Cave Creek Unified School District students listened to student keynote presentations on recycling and nutrition, took part in a hands-on science lesson, recess, lunch and signed the official sister school agreement with Principal Sparrow.

The students visited classes and read the English book that they donated to Colegio el Camino’s library. After a beach potluck, the students went home with a sister school friend for an overnight stay. The students also helped out at Los Cabos Humane Society.

Desert Willow’s Spanish Immersion program rolls up to Sonoran Trails and then on to Cactus Shadows High School.

The very first Spanish Immersion class from DWES graduates this year 2014-2015.
