Spanish Language Arts

Spanish language arts is an integral part of Spanish bilingual programming. The Spanish Language Arts Grades 6, 7, 8 & 9 Program of Studies reflects the breadth of Spanish bilingual programming by providing outcomes for learning language and culture. At Robert Warren School we integrate Spanish language into Math, Physical Education, Special Events and our daily interactions. 

Below is information pertaining to a Spanish for Parents – Level 1 course for fall 2018.  This course targets parents of bilingual students.

You will note the training will be held at Dr. E.P. Scarlet High School. Shari Goodfellow, the School Principal at Dr. E.P. Scarlet, is supportive and excited about being the host school.

The information is also posted on our website. If you wish to include the link in your parent newsletter it can be found at Languages for Parents

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!
