Boonsboro Elementary Magnet School for Global Awareness and World Languages
About Our School
Magnet students will engage in global literacy activities through language and cultural exploration. They will also take Spanish during each year of the program and have access to Rosetta Stone® for additional language exploration and mastery. Students with special aptitudes for and interests in reading, writing, and learning about other cultures will enjoy this program. Coursework moves at an accelerated pace that is one to two years above grade level in terms of breadth and/or depth. Students are expected to complete summer assignments, which “frontload” content and allow magnet teachers to increase the depth of unit exploration throughout the school year. Past school activities have included field trips, Global T-Shirt Day, guest speakers, multi-media projects using digital cameras and laptop labs, school-wide contests, and writing challenges.

Boonsboro Elementary processed and submitted over 10,000 box tops last spring, which will result in more than $1,000 for our school, benefiting all students. Keep those box tops coming! Simply remove them from General MIlls products, and if you would, please trim along the dotted lines. Send them to school with your child and let's see how many we can collect this year. Thank you!
