Spanish Elective at Oak Valley
Will your child be attending Oak Valley Middle School as a 7th grader next year? Are you disappointed that Spanish is not an elective option? While students who attend other PUSD middle schools are being offered an opportunity to learn a new language, Oak Valley students are not. Please share your frustration by signing our petition. We hope that a strong show of parental support will initiate a change to offer Spanish as an elective for the 2017-2018 school year. Signing this petition signifies your request that a Spanish elective be available to students enrolled in the 7th grade for the next school year. We hope you will also feel inclined to email your request for a Spanish course to Oak Valley’s principal, Casey Currigan. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Experts widely recognize that learners should be exposed to a foreign language as early and as frequently as possible. Please help us set up our sons and daughters for success. Exposure to Spanish at the middle school level will certainly support students as they prepare for their high school studies and beyond. Foreign language teachers at Del Norte High School also recognize the disadvantages of postponing language study. Poway Unified School District prides itself on meeting the needs of a 21st century student who can thrive in an increasingly competitive and global society. Let’s advocate for this important class. We appreciate your support and activism.
