Students from Travis Primary School led the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States and Texas flags Monday night in both English and Spanish to open the Sulphur Springs School Board special session. The students also participated in a presentation that highlighted the Dual Language Enrichment program at the school.
The students work in bilingual groups or pairs in three classes at Travis. Writing and reading are emphasized as the students work during the day and in a minimum 30-minute a day self-directed program. They have three different teachers during the day who each focus on two subjects. Also other activities at Travis Primary School , first and second grade students, were noted. There are 245 students at Travis Primary School this year.
