Friends of St. Louis Language Immersion Schools,
On behalf of our co-chairs Ms. Betsy Cohen of the St. Louis Mosaic Project and Mr. Kevin Lee of DeSmet Jesuit High School and the community at St. Louis Language Immersion Schools, it is my pleasure to announce that the Nomination Process is now open for our 2015 Night of Celebration: Light the Fire to be held Friday, October 16 in the Ballroom at the Four Seasons St. Louis.
St. Louis Language Immersion Schools will be honoring outstanding local leaders in three award categories:
Social Equity Love of Language Global Understanding
Each honoree makes the mission of St. Louis Language Immersion Schools possible – to position all children for success in local and global economies through holistic, intellectually-inspiring language immersion programs. This year, nearly 900 students are served in our three separate language-based elementary schools – The French School, The Spanish School and The Chinese School – and The International School, our secondary program that opened in August 2014. Funds raised from the Night of Celebration support the expansion of our academic programs & our annual operational growth.
I hope that you will consider nominating an individual, group or organization for one of these awards. Nomination criteria can be found here or can be accessed through our website at www.sllis.org. The Nominations process closes on April 30th and we look to make our honoree announcements in May.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Rachel D’Souza-Siebert, Director of Development, with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-633-8318
