What is Hmong Studies?
Phalen Lake’s Hmong Studies Curriculum offers students the opportunity to explore the culture, language, history, traditions, literature and art of the Hmong People.
The Hmong Culture and Language Enrichment Program, established more than five years ago, is nationally recognized. Building on the success of our Program, Hmong Studies will be integrated into the Core Knowledge Curriculum at each grade.
In addition, students interested in becoming proficient in reading and writing in Hmong will be given the opportunity to participate in Hmong Literacy classes.

What is Core Knowledge?
The Core Knowledge Curriculum taught at Phalen Lake Elementary provides a clear outline of content to be learned grade-by-grade without repetition or gaps. The goal of Core Knowledge is to provide all children, regardless of background, with the shared knowledge they need to participate in our literate society.
