The Kalona Elementary Arabic Program federal Grant is running out. Zahra Alattar is the Arabic Teacher and says that this year will be the last for the program. She says the students have been learning more than just a language. She says it teaches students to open their minds to other cultures in the world and to look at things a different way. Alattar is hopeful the district can find an alternative funding source.
