SOUTH SALT LAKE — Two Granite School District principals are headed to France to attend a seminar on French language education.
Morningside Elementary Principal Joan Bramble and Diamond Ridge Elementary Principal Debbie Koji have been invited by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to attend the seminar in Paris, where they will meet with other administrators from around the world to gain insight and share ideas about French language education.
Morningside and Diamond Ridge house two of 10 French dual-immersion programs in Utah. The principal from Edgemont Elementary in Provo, Dennis Pratt, was also invited to the Paris seminar.
The dual-language immersion program provides students with a bilingual experience during the peak time for language development capabilities. Instruction is divided between two classrooms: one where English is spoken and the other in the second language.
