About Our Spanish Program

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-3 meet once/week for a 30 minute class.
  • Grades 4-5 meets once/week for a 40 minute class.
  • Grades 6-8 meet twice/week for 50 minutes each.

The JOY mission unifies and drives our students and faculty. Although the word JOY is not a Spanish word, the people each letter describes in English, can be easily translated into Spanish:

  • Jesus
  • Otros (others)
  • Yo (myself)
