Español Jr. High
¡Hola! ¡Bienvenidos! Yo soy Señora Rivas. I am the Spanish teacher at St. Catherine of Siena School (SCS). Ven, déjame hablarte de nuestro programa de español, es muy interesante. Come, let me explain about our Spanish program. It is very interesting.
St. Catherine of Siena is adopting a Spanish program for Jr. High. This program is going to prepare our students for success in High School where two years of second language are mandatory. The Spanish program provides one hour per week of graded instruction and an academic-based Spanish curriculum. This unique Junior High Spanish program helps our students develop the necessary skills and tools to successfully learn a second language now, later in high school and beyond. This program provides our Jr. High students with the opportunity to not simply experience learning a second language as “words”, instead, our students also learn the music, traditions and rich Catholic faith practices, through the eyes and hearts of the vibrant Hispanic community in the United States.
Yes, learning a second language is challenging…however, SCS is making it fun and approachable for our students!
