Some Carthage elementary students will be heading to Jefferson City tomorrow.
Four of Fairview Elementary’s Dual Language Academy students will be speaking at the Missouri School Board Association Legislative Forum. The Dual Language Program allows students to learn both Spanish and English while in elementary school.
The public will be able to ask the students about what it's like to learn two different languages at the same time in the state capitol.
"It's very exciting. We feel like we do a lot of great things every day in our district. We have this particular program that's very unique and very different and provides a sort of global minded opportunity for our students,” says Jana Sawyer.
There are nearly 120 students enrolled in the Carthage Dual Language Academy.
