Friday’s Hispanic and Latino American Festival was so meaningful and special! Everyone was incredibly impressed with the songs and dances to celebrate cultures from Spanish speaking countries. Many thanks to Maestra Ghahramani, all the Immersion teachers and our Amity interns  for planning this extraordinary event!


As this year comes to a close, we wanted to thank our Amity Interns, Irene and Nuria, for all their contributions to Laurel. Irene and Nuria helped our students develop even better Spanish language skills. They taught them about Spanish culture with fun, interactive activities, presentations, individual learning sessions and more! We wish them the best of luck in their next adventures and we will miss them so much!


We are looking for host families for our Amity Interns for the 2018 -2019 school year. Are you interested? If so, please contact Liliana Perazich 415-297-0125 or email lilgol@yahoo.com. Click here for more info.
