Churchill Road sixth graders Nadia Jo, Paul Kim, Brian Kim, Tia Choi, Yurim Kim and Irene Choi-all of whom are bilingual in English and Korean-created a poster to welcome the Daegu educational delegation to Churchill Road.

On Friday, Jan. 11, Churchill Road hosted the Daegu Metropolitan Office of Education, a delegation comprising 45 Korean teachers. The purpose of their visit to the United States is to visit American landmarks and tour American schools. After Principal Don Hutzel welcomed them, Corinne Reilly, Churchill Road’s Advanced Academic Resource teacher, shared an overview of FCPS’s program and highlighted the work of the Churchill Road students. A group of sixth grade students bilingual in Korean assisted with the delegation’s tour of the school, which included visits to the art room and some of the sixth grade classrooms. The Korean educators enjoyed seeing the American educational system in action and comparing it to their nation’s education systems.
