J.T. Moore offers Spanish to Glendale Elementary students to continue their 5 years of immersion education. Spanish at JTM transitions from the academic-theme offered at Glendale to a conversation-based curriculum. Students who wish to continue their Spanish education from Glendale MUST enroll in the 5th and 6th grade classes in order to eligible for Spanish 1 (for high school credit) in 7th grade; students who opt not to continue in 5th and/or 6th grade will not be allowed to re-enter the pathway in 7th grade.
5th graders in 2016-17 will take Spanish during the “zero period” from 7:45am-8:40am, before school starts. This class is a for-credit class just like any other class at JTM. Note that the “D hallway” (where the Spanish classrooms are located) is not accessible until 7:45am. See this article for additional information.
6th graders will take pre-high school Spanish during their related arts period instead of attending before school Spanish in 2016-17. Students who are enrolled in band/strings from this group will have band/strings during intervention – the last period of the day.
7th and 8th graders from Glendale who have continued the pathway through 5th and 6th grade will take Spanish for high-school credit during the regular school day.
J.T. Moore welcomes 2 new Spanish teachers for the 2016-17 school year:
Parents who have students at Moore in the 5th grade “zero period” Spanish AND also students still at Glendale can take advantage of the free shuttle bus running between J.T. Moore and Glendale. This allows parents to drop off their Moore and Glendale students at JTM, and the Glendale students are dropped off (via bus) at Glendale by 8am. More information is available HERE
