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. Students who did not attend Glendale and would like to take Spanish must test into the program.
5th graders in 2019-20 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.
6th graders will take pre-high school Spanish during their related arts period. 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.
JT Moore has 2 Spanish teachers: Thaddeus Bryant and Julia Trudel
