There is a correlation between bilingualism and memory skills.

Watch a Puppet Show by the 1st Grade Class!
Our students have a way of amazing us! The first grade class was learning about sentence and story structure, and the students took the concept to another level. They asked their teacher if they could do a puppet show. But not just acting out a story that they read but to do an entire production; writing the story, designing the stage and creating the puppets without assistance from any teachers.
