Bienvenue to the French Immersion Foundation!
The Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation is hosting two connection events for the Milwaukee French Immersion community!
UPDATE as of September 23, 2022:
Sky Zone is offering 120-minute, 90-minute, and 60-minute jump passes tonight, so you come at 5:30pm, 6pm, or even 6:30pm and pay for the appropriately-timed jump pass.
120-minute pass: $27.99
90-minute pass: $24.99
60-minute pass: $22.99
Jump socks (unless you already have them): $4.99
UPDATE as of September 22, 2022:
The time of this event has been moved up by 30 minutes. We originally thought we could jump until 8pm, but there was some miscommunication with Sky Zone. GLOW jumping at Sky Zone starts at 8pm, but open jump ends at 7:30pm so that Sky Zone staff can clean up and prepare for GLOW at 8pm.
Is 5:30pm too early? No problem!
You can still arrive at 6pm and get a 90-minute jump pass and still connect and “sauter” with the French Immersion community.
Parents! Don’t plan on jumping?
That’s totally fine, and Sky Zone will only charge you if you plan on jumping on the trampolines. So you can show up for free, talk with other parents and watch your kids from the side.
All French Immersion students in Milwaukee are invited to come “sauter” (jump) at SkyZone Greenfield. Come connect with other families and students and learn more about the Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation and the MFIS PTA!
$28 per jumper
More about the Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation
The Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation was founded by a small group of parents of students attending the Milwaukee French Immersion School and the Milwaukee School of Languages who recognized the gem we have in the city of Milwaukee of a public, urban, diverse school that outperforms schools in both the district and the state.
Many of us parents fell in love with the French immersion program as soon as we walked through the doors. Seeing four year olds speaking with their teachers in French is something special. First impressions are one thing, but as parents we look deeper. How exciting it was to discover that in addition to French Immersion students becoming fluent in French, French Immersion students also excel in all other subject matter, consistently outperforming their counterparts in the State.
We parents recognize that the French Immersion program in Milwaukee is something special. Others have noticed as well. For example, after visiting the Milwaukee French Immersion School, the Minneapolis Public School system introduced a public, urban French immersion program based in part on the success of Milwaukee French Immersion School.
Unfortunately, we parents also recognize that we can’t sit back and rely on public funding to fund every aspect of this amazing program. As such, we founded the Milwaukee French Immersion Foundation. The Foundation exists to ensure that the French Immersion program in Milwaukee Public Schools receives the support it needs for these children to thrive and to excel. Graduates of this program are amazing examples of what can be accomplished in an urban public school when teachers, parents and students collaborate to insist on excellence.
Join us in this important effort.
