Exciting Changes for the 6th Grade World Language Program!

We are undergoing some exciting changes in our 6th grade language program! Beginning next year, students entering the 6th grade will choose one language to explore for the year. Students may then continue their language in 7th & 8th grade, or switch to a new language. The language program will be as follows:

6th Grade:  Exploring French / Exploring Latin / Exploring Spanish (classes meet every other day)
7th Grade: French 1A / Latin 1A / Mandarin 1A / Spanish 1A (classes meet every day)
8th Grade: French 1B / Latin 1B / Mandarin 1B / Spanish 1B (classes meet every day)

We are asking 5th grade parents to give us your first, second, and third choice of a language for the 6th grade exploratory program so that we may schedule your classes for next year. We will do our best to give you your first choice, though you may be assigned your second or third choice due to limited space.

If you do not receive your first choice, you will be able to switch in the 7th grade, but will not be allowed to switch in the 6th grade. We are not able to offer Mandarin in the 6th grade at this time.

If you are a 5th grade parent, please fill out the LANGUAGE SELECTION SURVEY as soon as possible.
