    This event is to help educate the Chapel-Carrboro Community about the significant lifetime benefits of dual-language learning in early childhood and raise money for a scholarship fund for the school. The event includes activities for young children (ages 3 to 8) in one of the Art Center studios; a presentation by Dr. Ximena Franco, a researcher at the Frank Porter Graham Institute, who will discuss what the latest research is showing about the benefits of early childhood immersion in a second language and the benefits of bilingualism; short performances by current Mi Escuelita children and alumni; and a reception in the Art Center’s central gallery afterward
