Peb ntseeg tias yim paub ntau hom lus, yim zoo xwb thiab yog ib txoj kev yuav pab kom ua tau ib tug neeg txawj ntse, txawj xav, thiab txawj coj rau yav pem suab. Phalen Lake offers a unique opportunity for students to discover the gift of bilingualism through our Hmong Dual Language program. We believe knowing more than one language brings countless benefits to our students and greatly enhances their intellectual growth, their cross-cultural skills, and broadens their world views to make world-class citizens.
COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines
SPPS will require masks for all people in a school setting (ages 2+), including all teachers, staff, students and visitors, regardless of vaccination status. Families should familiarize themselves with the SPPS COVID-19 Student and Family Guidelines, which are updated regularly and cover prevention strategies, health screening and monitoring, and the SPPS COVID-19 Reporting System.
Throughout the year, all students learn about Hmong history and culture. Their learning is expanded to learn about other cultures and communities in their neighborhood. Students connect their learning to their own lives and to that of their friends and neighbors. Students are encouraged to learn their home languages and to learn new ones.
As a bilingual and bi-cultural leader, Ms. Xiong values the cultural assets that staff, students, and families bring to Phalen Lake. She looks forward to continuing her partnership with you and building upon the relationships she has established at Phalen Lake over the last 16 years.
