This year your second grader will learn about Teosinte, Arlington's Sister City in El Salvador. They will learn about the culture, the food, the geography and what life is like for kids their age in this small village in El Salvador. A representative of the Sister City project will visit their classrooms to show them pictures and answer questions.
While you may not be familiar with the Arlington Teosinte Sister City Project, you have likely heard of the fantastic Family Folk Chorale. We invite you to enjoy their upcoming all ages sing and concert with your friends and family and support Arlington-Teosinte at the same time!
