Sunday: Meetings on Mandarin immersion charter school


A meeting to provide information about the proposed Menlo Mandarin Immersion charter school will be held on Sunday, Aug. 24. A second session, from 1 to 3 p.m., has been added to the original 3 to 5 p.m. session.

Both are at the Parents Place, 200 Channing Ave. in Palo Alto. Child care and activities for children will be provided in the early session and for those already signed up for the second session. However, while some room for adults remains in the second session, no more spots for child care are available in the 3 to 5 p.m. session, according to organizers.

Scheduled speakers are Grace Mah, member of the Santa Clara County Board of Education; Ling-Chi Wang, University of California at Berkeley professor; Ching-Pei Hu, Principal of Meyerholz Elementary and part of the Cupertino Language Immersion Program; Thomas Sudhof, a biochemist and 2013 Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine and Stanford University professor; and Amado Padilla, a Stanford University professor whose research includes "studies involving second language learning and teaching, and strategies for achieving bilingual proficiency."

Those planning to attend are asked to send an email with the number attending and the name of their home school district to by Aug. 22. Space is limited.

More information about the school can be seen in an Aug. 13 Almanac story.
