CIAO! NI HAO! BONJOUR! HOLA!
Lincoln’s Foreign Language I ntroductory Program (FLIP) is a great way to learn a new language in a fun and stimulating environment! Children in the program acquire listening skills and develop the basis for conversation. They are also exposed to the cultures of the countries in which their chosen language is spoken.  FLIP is designed to introduce the fundamentals of foreign language and culture learning to kids before they are required to choose a modern language as a core element of their education at Roosevelt Middle School.

Many FLIP classes are filling up and some are already full.  DON’T MISS OUT – sign up on the PTO Web Store today!  Registration ends Friday, 9/6; classes start 9/10.
