¡Bienvenidos a Español!

 "Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are equipped linguistically and culturally to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. This imperative envisions a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language, modern or classical.”                     

- STANDARDS FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING : PREPARING FOR THE 21ST CENTURY, 1996

 In hopes of preparing St. John's students for the future in our multicultural society,  all students in grades K - 8 receive Spanish language instruction. Students learn basic communicative Spanish language skills and a basic understanding of the rich culture of the Spanish-speaking world. 

  • Grades K-4 meet once/week for a 30 minute class.

  • Grade 5 meets once/week for a 45 minute class.

  • Grades 6-8 meet twice/week for 45 minutes each.

We will have lots of fun this year building on previous year's knowledge through hands-on activities, stories, music and language acquisition games.
