Sing 'N Speak Spanish at Dingeman Elementary

Sing ‘n Speak Spanish® is a five year program that makes learning conversational Spanish easy and fun. We set high educational goals, but teach in a playful manner – with songs, humor, puppetry, games, role-play, and a strong emphasis on the use of vocabulary in conversation. A music CD, a songbook, and workbook keep Spanish learning fun throughout the week and reinforce vocabulary at home. Classes meet throughout the school year with a maximum of just 12 children per class. To learn more, go to www.singnspeak.com/frequently_asked_questions.html.

Dingeman families and their girls are invited to Join Girl Scouts!

When you think Girl Scouts, you might think cookies, campfires and friendship bracelets. And sure, those things are all part of this exciting, life-altering journey, but there’s so much more to it! Girl Scouts are big thinkers, groundbreakers, and role models. They design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities—and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet.

Girl Scout San Diego staff member Tracy Browns is available to answer questions about joining and or/starting a Girl Scout Troop in any grade, including TK and Kindergarten.  Tracy can be reached on 619-610-0757 and at tbrowns@sdgirlscouts.org.  Please contact her if you would like to reserve a place in the Troops that are forming for fall!

To check the status of new troops (organized by zip code and/or school) visit www.sdgirlscouts.org/join .  Girls can join any open troop listed in the online catalog. Tracy is currently looking for parents who would be interested in Leading and/or helping out with a Troop for Dingeman Tk, Kinder and 1st grade girls and welcomes your questions. If you are interested in being in this Troop email Tracy!  Please share this information with families you meet to spread the word about Girl Scouts!
