World Languages

  

All students in fkindergarten through fifth grades now take Spanish three days each week. 

Our full day district Kaleidoscope fourth and fifth graders take Mandarin Chinese.

All Webster students participate in the language program through fifth grade. The program focuses on fluent communication and culture. Students engage in learning through songs, stories, traditions, foods and holidays. Languages enrich our Humanities curriculum by offering multiple perspectives, culture, and arts!


Our Language teachers work with the grade level teachers to connect with New York State curriculum in Language Arts and Social Studies such as community, regions of the world, immigration, and family tradition.

Webster is inspired and guided by  The American Academy of Arts and Sciences....
