TOA for Foreign Languages
"Through learning language, we learn about culture.
Through learning about culture, we learn respect for others.
Through learning respect for others, we can hope for peace."
From Helena Curtain’s “Learning Language Through Context
The Lincoln Public Schools offer a Foreign Language in Elementary School (FLES) program in grades 3, 4, and 5. Students are involved in short segments of learning Spanish three times per week. Students on both campuses continue their Spanish learning in grades 6, 7, and 8. In Grade 6, students take language 5 days out of a six-day cycle. In 7th and 8th grade, students take language everyday. French is also offered on the Lincoln campus starting in grade 6.
