In Spanish class, we are learning to communicate with more people in our country and world with the purpose of being able to share the love of Jesus with them.


Students in Kindergarten through third grades are learning Spanish mainly through songs, puppets, and actions that connect to vocabulary words.  We focus on listening and speaking Spanish and will build upon those skills to read and write Spanish in the future.


Students in fourth through eighth grades study a new country or holiday each week to learn the context of the Spanish language and to expand their understanding of other cultures.  They also learn memory verses in Spanish to prepare them to share Jesus’ love with people who speak Spanish.
