Goals of the program:

Goals of the program Expose students to the Spanish language through the peoples, practices, products and perspectives the language encompasses by incorporating the “5C’s National Standards for Language”. In this current unit student will “travel” to Guatemala and learn about the culture of its people, and compare it to our own. Students will even create their own passports to Guatemala and report on the places they visited, music they listened to and foods they tasted. Explore Spanish with students using REAL-LIFE experiences through all language competencies. Each day students will be reading, writing, listening & speaking Spanish! Currently students are using classroom vocabulary to become acquainted with their new surroundings. They have joyfully jumped into listening to music and speaking with classmates. Ask them to share their Spanish name with you 

Thanks for coming!:

Thanks for coming! You may cross the hall to attend Miss Lagun’s presentation on Humanities. I dreamed I stood in a studio And watched two sculptors there; The clay they used was a young child’s mind And they fashioned it with care. One was a teacher, the tools he used Were books and music and art; One a parent with a guiding hand And a gentle, loving heart. Day after day the teacher toiled With a touch that was deft and sure; While the parent labored by his side And polished and smoothed it o’er. And when at last their task was done, They were proud of what they had wrought; For the things they molded into the child Could neither be sold nor bought. And each agreed he would have failed If he had worked alone; For behind the parent stood the school, And behind the teacher, the home. Author Unknown
