Supervisor's Message

“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.”
~Ludwig Wittgenstein

¡Bienvenido! Bienvenue! Welcome to the Howell Township Public Schools World Language Webpage. Here you will find information about our Spanish and French programs, as well as links to informative sites.

All Howell Township students receive World Language instruction in grades K-8.

Students in Kindergarten and Grade 1 receive Spanish World Language instruction for twenty minutes per week, through Salsa, an introductory, Spanish, DVD-based instructional program, designed for young children. In Grades 2-5, students receive Spanish World Language instruction for a total of forty minutes per week, with a certified Spanish teacher.

As students enter sixth grade, they may elect to continue their Spanish World Language studies, or to begin French World Language instruction in middle school. Middle school students attend either Spanish or French classes twice in every three-day cycle. Middle school students who participate in Project REACH (Remedial Education and Challenge) benefit from a World Language course specifically tailored for their course schedule. Our goal is to have all students performing at the novice-high level of proficiency when they move on to high school, so that each one will be successful in Level II World Language classes.

Our staff of highly qualified Spanish and French teachers is dedicated to providing instruction that is aligned with the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standard (NJCCCS) for World Languages. A link to the NJCCCS is provided through this site. We strive to produce students who are proficient speakers, who are culturally aware, and who love language learning.
