Laguna Hills High School—DELE Exam Fees
“Due to last year’s COVID situation, our students were unable to take the DELE Exam (Diplomas of Spanish as a Foreign Language) and as a result, this year we will have twice the number of students taking the DELE—which means twice the expense. An internationally recognized designation of Spanish proficiency, DELE provides an invaluable credential for our students as they apply for college and seek employment.” – Bill Hinds, Principal
Los Alisos Intermediate School —Socialization and Communication Events
“Our students need to have a comprehensive immersion language experience in all forms of communication—reading, writing, speaking and understanding. To encourage real-world application of their Spanish verbal communications, we will apply the funds raised from the Fall Donation Pledge to host Immersion Dance and Movie Nights.” – Rich Freda, Principal
Ralph A. Gates Elementary—Library Books & Homework Club
“As a K-6th grade immersion program, we need an extensive collection of Spanish books to support our students’ successful comprehension of a bilingual education. In addition to adding Spanish books to our library, we will also use the donated funds to enhance our student support by adding an after school homework club.” – Diana Clearwater, Principal
