Elementary After-School Foreign Language Information

Posted on: November 8, 2023


FORMS/REGISTRATION Accepted Through Friday November 17, 2023

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The enrollment period for our After School World Language Program is now beginning. This year, the program is open to students in grades 3-5. The goals of the program are to provide students with a basic introduction to a foreign language, to stimulate interest in further study of world languages, and to promote an appreciation for another culture. We have partnered with a Miami University class that has developed a comprehensive curriculum for this program. We are excited to continue to offer this opportunity for our students.

Ten class sessions will be held. On Tuesdays from February 6th through April 23rd, students in grades 3-5 will attend classes at their home school. Class sessions will begin at 3:30 and end at 4:20. As in the past, parents must provide students' transportation home and must be on time. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior by a student can result in immediate dismissal from the program.

This year we are able to offer the following languages: Chinese, French, , German, Spanish, and American Sign Language (ASL). The volunteer instructors will be students from Miami University. Language choices are dependent on the availability of our Miami volunteers.

The cost for this program is $10. Please send your student with a drink. Allergy free snacks will be provided but drinks are NOT provided by Talawanda. During inclement weather when school is canceled, the world language class is also canceled.

In order to facilitate enrollment and class assignments, please fill out the other side of this letter, include cash or check, and return it to your child's classroom or teacher no later than Friday, November 10th.
