Students Explore World Languages


The district celebrated World Languages and Cultural Awareness Month this March through a wide-range of activities and projects. As a conclusion to their celebration and as a means of better ‘connecting’ to the languages celebrated, the students throughout the district came together to share in their collective appreciation for the different dialects spoken around the world. High School LOTE (Languages Other Than English) students visited May Moore and John Quincy Adams Elementary Schools to teach students foreign language lessons.

The elder students introduced the young scholars to the basics of Spanish, French and Italian and instructed them on numbers, colors, animals, songs and months of the year. High school students created visual aids to enhance their lessons and reinforce the information the students learned in a variety of curricular areas. Through interactive activities, students completed projects that applied their new skills with the assistance of high school students.
