Mooney adds Chinese classes
In a continuing effort to offer a curriculum that reflects students’ needs, Cardinal Mooney High School is adding two Chinese classes to its course offerings.
Principal John Young and President Rev. Gerald DeLucia noted that the course “reflects the growing inter-relationship between the Chinese and American economies. We were alerted to the need for the course by alumni and parents who have traveled to China on business.”
The courses will be taught by Lauren Mangino, a retired teacher from the Warren City Schools. She has traveled in China, and taught Chinese courses at Warren Harding High School.
An informational meeting for parents and students interested in the course has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Cardinal Mooney. Details about the course offering and requirements will be discussed at that time.
