Welcome to the Spanish Program. All students in grades K - 5 have Spanish once a week and grades 7-8 have Spanish classes three times a week. 


Students learn basic Spanish vocabulary and phrases through written work, song, video presentations and activities. The Spanish Class web page has helpful websites with flashcards and many review activities, as well as challenging information for students who want to learn ahead or who already are bilingual.
